Logentries Launches Real-time Log Management and Analytics Integration with Geckoboard Dashboards

Shareable dashboards using JSON enable real-time performance monitoring accessible from anywhere, across any team

July 17, 2014

Boston, Massachusetts (July 17, 2014) – Logentries, the most connected log management and analytics service, today announced a new integration with Geckoboard that brings valuable log data visualizations and analytics to the centralized Geckoboard business dashboard. The Logentries service can also now export real-time log data visualizations and metrics dashboards to other third-party operations dashboards, and teams can access their critical log data from anywhere, at any time.

Logentries Shareable Dashboards enable users to build a real-time metrics dashboard within Logentries and easily export via JSON format to an external tool such as Geckoboard. Geckoboard provides a centralized location for monitoring all business metrics, pulling from various sources, including Logentries. With the new integration, Development, Operations, and Business Analytics teams can look at KPIs generated from log data alongside other important metrics from across their business, including website performance, product usage and sales and marketing transactions, which can also be captured using log data.

“The new capabilities for integrating Logentries analytics directly with Geckoboard helps us to display our system and application log data alongside other business services and make these stats available to the Dev teams in an aggregated view,” said Christian Mähler, Director of Software Development, PTV Group

“Our customers are using log data to monitor all aspects of their businesses, from Development, to Operations, to product usage metrics, and they need to easily share critical business dashboards across their teams, and across their organizations,” said Trevor Parsons, Co-founder and Chief Scientist, Logentries. “We are excited to partner with Geckoboard to offer an out-of-the-box approach to adding valuable log data-generated metrics to users’ existing dashboard views.”

Logentries enables users to conduct a query using regular expression or simple search terms on individual or groups of logs to identify key business metrics and trends on any information captured in your logs (such as average sale value, server load, webpage response time etc.). This information is now available as an http endpoint from Logentries that can be instantly consumed by an external tool such as Geckoboard via JSON message.

“At Geckoboard we believe everybody should have access to the data they need when they need it,” said Rob Hudson, CTO at Geckoboard. “Partners like Logentries offer deep insight into data that integrate with our API to help customers achieve that faster.”

The Logentries service features a unique pre-processing engine that collects and analyzes log files in real-time to offer immediate alerting, visualizations, and tailing of the data. There is no complex query language required, making searching the data easy and intuitive with click-through navigation – Logentries points out the important data points so you don’t have to go looking for them.
