Research Highlights

Big Insights from little Data: A Spotlight on Unlocking Insights from the Log Data That Matters

The research team analyzed over 22 billion events produced across a 14 day period by 6000 Heroku apps, which make up a sample of the Logentries user base. The team analyzed these events from the perspective of a DevOps professional, someone responsible for building and running cloud applications. They determined that a significant amount of the most useful and actionable data for a given use case goes unnoticed, because it is a vanishingly small percentage of the overall dataset.
