Logentries Announces Machine Learning Analytics for IT Ops Monitoring

New Cloud Service for Anomaly Detection and Inactivity Alerting Improves System Up-time and Accelerates Issue Resolution

Logentries Announces Machine Learning Analytics for IT Ops Monitoring

Logentries, the most connected log management and analytics service built for the cloud, today announced new Anomaly Detection and Inactivity Alerting to help Dev and IT Ops proactively monitor, troubleshoot and resolve production system issues in real-time. Cloud-based Logentries Anomaly Detection automatically notifies users when abnormal events occur or pattern deviations surpass defined thresholds. Additionally, Logentries users can now create real-time alerting based on the absence of expected events or a shift in system behavior patterns. Using advanced machine-learning technology, the Logentries service is enabling users to proactively detect performance and security issues, and resolve problems more quickly to improve end user experience and overall system and application performance.

As modern systems are increasingly decoupled and distributed, IT and Development Operations teams often lack an effective means to monitor, troubleshoot and resolve potential issues with their production systems. When there is a shift in system behavior, or something abnormal has occurred, it is important to be automatically notified in real-time in order to mitigate potentially serious events or system-wide outages. For example, if a server response time changes from one second to five seconds, but does not generate any standard errors, Operations teams could miss the issue because they did not receive an alert. Logentries' new Anomaly Detection and Inactivity Alerting enables users to easily create a baseline query to extract specific log-based data that they want to monitor and receive alerts on.

"Logentries is quickly expanding the value of log data for our Ops team by not only centralizing and indexing all of our log sources, but now adding an automated log-based approach to monitoring and alerting that helps us to more quickly detect performance and security issues," said Geoffrey Smalling, CTO, 500friends.

With Logentries Anomaly Detection, users can:

  • Set-up real-time alerting based on deviations from important patterns and log events.
  • Easily customize Anomaly thresholds and compare different time periods.
  • Drill into specific field level data, not just generic events.
  • Receive alerts via text message, email, SMS, PagerDuty, HipChat, and Campfire.

With Logentries Inactivity Alerting, users can:

  • Monitor standard, incoming events such as an application heart beat.
  • Receive real-time alerts based on log inactivity (i.e. receive alerts when something does not occur).
  • Monitor systems for specific server performance issues or configuration issues.
  • Monitor application availability 24/7.

"It's particularly important to not only monitor errors in your logs, but proactively recognize where there has been a shift in system behavior," said Trevor Parsons, Co-founder and Chief Scientist, Logentries. "Our Anomaly Detection and Inactivity Alerting adds a new level of sophistication to Logentries that notifies users in real-time when something significantly changes in their system, such as application usage patterns, system response times or server resource consumption."

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.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications.
