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 real-time dashboards for different views into your system make so much sense? Here's a few reasons why I think creating dashboards from your logs is what I like to call a ‘no-brainer': Logs already contain valuable data on your systems. Before you add any log events from your applications, your system components (operating systems, web servers, application servers, databases, load balancers, routers, firewalls etc.) already ...

Monitoring and Analyzing AWS CloudTrail Data

We recently released AWS CloudTrail integration with Logentries - and not surprisingly we've seen a significant uptick in adoption as one of our most popular integrations. My job as director of customer success is to make things as simple for our customers as possible. One question that consistently pops up, is how to collect AWS CloudTrail logs from multiple AWS regions. We follow Amazon's best practices when it comes to integrating with, and receiving information from, CloudTrail. In short, this works as follows: When configuring CloudTrail, it will write events to a S3 bucket.... (more)

"New DevOps Plug-in" By @TrevParsons | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

As co-founder of Logentries I am often asked - "Why Logs?"  And I have to admit, upon first impression, ‘log management and analytics' does not seem like the sexiest space :). However at Logentries we are here to redefine that space, to provide a solution to access, manage and understand your log 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 question, "Why logs?" Logs are the most fine-grained data source for understanding today's system. Unlike traditional monitoring and analyt... (more)

Logging and Continuous Delivery By @FloMotlik | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Guest blog post by Florian Motlik, Cofounder & CTO of Codeship Inc. Why Great Logging Is Key to Continuous Delivery Over the last years Continuous Delivery has gained a massive following with many development teams embracing the style. Companies have chosen (as with many other modern developer tools), to either build their own embrace a hosted service likeCodeship. In the end though, no matter if you go with a hosted service or roll it on your own, the goal is to move faster and build a product that your customers really love. For that you need to iterate quickly, get feedback an... (more)

ES6 & Javascript in Harmony

ES6 & Javascript in Harmony: An Overview of New Language Features This article originally published on the Logentries blog. ECMAScript 6 brings powerful new capabilities and some tasty syntactical sugar to the ubiquitous Javascript language, as it continues to grab an ever 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 browser update. For the impatient, there are also now ... (more)
