Logentries Partners With Hosted Graphite To Integrate Log Data Visualization Into Ops Monitoring Dashboards

IT and DevOps teams can now visually correlate and analyze log data alongside other business critical metrics

October 1, 2014

Boston, Massachusetts (October 1, 2014) – Logentries, the log management and analytics service built for the cloud, today announced a Hosted Graphite integration that enables users to easily extract their most important log level metrics and display them visually in a Hosted Graphite environment. From server stats, to application stats, to application-user behavior metrics, the integration plugs valuable metrics generated from log data into a centralized dashboard providing insightful correlation and analysis with other critical business metrics.

Today, log data is used as a shared source of information across all aspects of a business, from development, to operations, to marketing, to business management. Similarly, metrics extracted from other key system components are regularly exposed via Graphite, a popular open source real-time graphing system. By extracting log level metrics from the Logentries service and displaying it in Hosted Graphite’s real-time monitoring dashboard, users can consolidate their monitoring into one single location and easily correlate across key business metrics.

“Managing a real-time news website requires that our Ops team is able to monitor and analyze performance and user experience in real-time,” said Andrew Mullaney, CTO and Co-Founder, NewsWhip. “The Logentries and Hosted Graphite integration enables us to do this by bringing log level data into centralized, dynamic dashboards where we can use it to monitor across applications and users, and also correlate with broader system-level metrics and KPIs.”

With Logentries’ Hosted Graphite integration, users can:

  • View various log data streams (server memory, CPU, exception count) in one hosted, real-time graph.
  • Export unlimited metrics from Logentries into Hosted Graphite.
  • Correlate important log data across all metrics within a Hosted Graphite environment.

“Logs and metrics have always been two sides of the same monitoring coin, and it is great to be able to bring them together,” said Dave Concannon, CEO, Hosted Graphite. “The ability to correlate Logentries’ log data with application and system metrics from Hosted Graphite gives our users a detailed, holistic view of how their software is performing.”

“The modern Ops team requires data from a range of different tools and data sources to give them a complete picture of their complex environments,” said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist and Co-founder, Logentries. “Both log data and platforms like Hosted Graphite are key components in the modern Ops toolkit and allow for a consolidated view. Connecting these technologies enables easy correlation to help identify and understand important trends, key performance indicators, and system behaviors.”

The cloud-based Logentries service collects and pre-processes log events in real-time for on-demand analysis, alerting and visualization. With custom tagging and filtering, users can correlate security and performance issues with broader infrastructure activity including application usage, server metrics, and user behavior.
