What You Can Learn From Log-level Usage Reports
Separating the signal from the noise is one of the biggest challenges when
dealing with machine-generated log data today and has generally required deep
technical expertise. However once you find that signal it can be massively
useful and can help you make business decisions with a big impact. Today
Logentries is announcing log level usage reports, which is one more way we
are striving to do the hard work so you don't have to!
At first glance, log-level usage reports might seem quite rudimentary insofar
as they are weekly reports of the log volumes you send to Logentries.
However, the reports can give you an intelligent breakdown of your log
volumes by application, server, process as well as at the individual log
level.The usage reports are designed to provide IT and Dev Ops teams with a
weekly snapshot of their syste... (more)

By Mark Lacomber
Of the many additions to Java 8 such as the Stream API and lambdas, I
noticed one of the lesser talked about ones was CompletableFutures. So I

A recent blog explored the importance of logging in general in terms of IoT
devices. It also cited predictions that a huge number (50 billion) of IoT
devices are expected to exist by 2020. While Machine to Machine(M2M)
communication is a related area, the IoT is all about extending the Internet
to systems and even low power devices.
While there is uncertainty about the exact nature of how these devices will
be networked and how their data will be used, there is no doubt that huge
opportunities exist. This blog will develop some of these themes, an... (more)

Success or failure of e-Commerce sites boil down to transactions. In brick
and mortar stores, transactions are handled by point of sale systems. Their
operation is outsourced, and their complexity is low. But for e-Commerce
applications, the transactions not only rely on the processing API you
choose, they also rely on the servers, the performance of the web
application, the user experience and more. And your ability to adapt to the
users in real-time, is what helps you drive a repeat visit and compete with
E-Commerce is no longer novel, and the com... (more)
