The power of log data and the unparalleled role that logs can play in effective end-to-end system monitoring

Introducing Logentries' Python APM Community Pack
by Matt Kiernan

At Logentries, we feel strongly about the power of log data and the unparalleled role that logs can play in effective end-to-end system monitoring. Yet we feel it also important to recognize how other monitoring approaches can further supplement a log monitoring solution to provide even greater, actionable insight into system performance. One such approach is Application Performance Management (APM) and today we're excited to announce our first APM Community Pack.

While log data provides a more comprehensive overview of system health than traditional Application Performance Management, an APM tool can offer insights into an issue's root cause at the code level. Logentries' new APM Community Pack leverages a new extension recently added to our Python librarythat gives developers the ability to calculate important metrics related to any function they choose to measure.

Using the Logentries' new APM Community helps to easily analyze the effect of function execution on overall system performance.
Using the new Pack, developers can do things like identify low performing functions, reveal memory leaks and monitor remaining system resources.

With this new level of insight, developers can spend less time searching for answers and more time writing good, clean code.

The recent APM updates to our Python library also enable users to extend the functionality of the library. For example, a developer could now decide to add network or disk statistics to their logs and measure network load generation by function. Developers could also create a counter to measure the number of method calls over time.

The Logentries Python APM Community Pack is available for free and takes only seconds to install. Visit community.logentries.com/packs/python to get started today.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
