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...

Playing with Java 8’s Completable Futures By @MarkLacomber | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Playing with Java 8's Completable Futures 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 decided to have a play around with them on the last Java component I wrote. My use case in a nutshell was piping large volumes of data from a distributed file system, compressing it and uploading to individual destinations on Amazon S3. For anyone who has worked with Guava's ListenableFutures, which allow you to add a completion listener to a regular Java future, CompletableFuture... (more)

End-to-End 'Internet of Things' Monitoring – Part 1 | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

By David Tracey, Logentries.com 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)

eComm: Living & Dying by Transactions By @HoardingInfo | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

By Chris Riley 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 other sites. E-Commerce is no longer novel, and the com... (more)
