Logentries Revolutionizes “Live Tail” for DevOps in the Cloud

First log management and analytics service to aggregate, monitor and visualize multiple real-time streams of machine data

August 5, 2014

Boston, Massachusetts (August 5, 2014) – Logentries, the most connected log management and analytics service, today announced a new Aggregated Live Tail view for real-time monitoring of important security and performance events, and proactive troubleshooting across production systems. As a cloud service, Logentries Aggregated Live Tail enables users running on virtually any platform, on-premise, or in the cloud, to watch and filter multiple log streams simultaneously, and instantly validate important events occurring in production.

“The Logentries service, particularly the Aggregated Live Tail, has been invaluable as we continue to expand and enhance our platform,” said Scott Rankin, VP of Technology, Motus. “The Aggregated Live Tail saves our developers and operations teams a tremendous amount of time when pushing out releases across multiple machines, and has allowed us to troubleshoot issues much faster than we ever could before.”

Today, IT and development teams must fully support distributed networks, systems, and teams across cloud-enabled environments. This often demands real-time, log-level visibility into servers, applications, and systems of all types, which historically have not been easy to access. Logentries has built a log management and analytics service for cloud-enabled environments where real-time access and deep insight into system events and activity is required. The new Aggregated Live Tail view makes this even easier by bringing selected log streams together into one single view, and providing real-time monitoring and alerting.

With Logentries Aggregated Live Tail, users can:

  • Dynamically aggregate logs from across different sources into a single view.
  • Watch aggregate log data streams in real-time.
  • Search and filter live data to highlight important events in production.

Logentries’ Aggregated Live Tail collects logs in virtually any format, from virtually any system and makes them available in live tail mode within seconds. All logs pass through the Logentries pre-processing engine that automatically tags and creates alerts on important log events and trends. The new aggregated view also enables automated, real-time filtering to only show events that contain particular parameters, which help to quickly identify the most important events amid billion of log files.

“We are very excited to bring Aggregated Live Tail to the Logentries Community and offer the ability to monitor all your log streams aggregated into a single view,” said Trevor Parsons, Co-founder and Chief Scientist, Logentries. “Unlike legacy approaches, our customers can now easily monitor in live mode 24/7 to quickly pinpoint where server errors are occurring in seconds.”

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.
