I recently came across a blog post on OpenOpsIQ asking the question: "With
the introduction of real-time logging, why cant we have a single solution for
monitoring the entire stack?" In my opinion, you can! As we have seen lately
from a survey we carried out across a sample of the Logentries' 25,000+ user
base, organizations are starting to apply logs for a wider range of use
cases. So why would you do this, and why does using log data to create

data that is easy to use, cost effective and intelligent (i.e., it does the
hard work so you don't have to). But that being said it still begs the

ECMAScript 6 brings powerful new capabilities and some tasty syntactical
increasing slice of developer mindshare.
Now that the ES6 feature set is frozen and just minor refinements will be
made over the coming months, much of this new functionality has already
landed in modern browsers, and will continue to roll out with each new
