Logentries Expands IT and Dev Ops Integrations with Diamond and Nagios Plug-ins

New integrations offer deep analysis and correlation of server, application and overall system health using log-level data insight

BOSTON, Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Logentries, the log management and analytics service built for the cloud, continues to expand value for IT and Dev Ops teams with new integrations for popular open source Ops tools, Diamond and Nagios via Shinken.  In addition to existing integrations with New Relic, Hosted Graphite, Geckoboard, Pager Duty, HipChat, and Campfire, Logentries is now offering deeper levels of server monitoring and analysis with Diamond, a Python module for metrics collection, and overall system health monitoring with Shinken, a Nagios compatible monitoring framework.

As more and more organizations move to the cloud, log data provides a unifying data source that enables IT and Dev Ops teams to monitor across servers, applications, and clients. Log files are the most fine-grained data source available for understanding today's systems and automatically generating an audit trail of all transactions. Log data provides deep insight into performance, security, user behavior, web app activity, and more. These complex new business environments also require an IT and Dev Ops toolset that is designed to instrument and optimize a distributed infrastructure. Logentries' new Diamond and Shinken Nagios plug-ins enable users to collect metric-rich log data in one centralized location, and perform automated correlation and analysis across server and other important infrastructure data, including data from existing Nagios deployments.

The Logentries Diamond Plug-in enables IT and Dev Ops teams to easily collect critical resource usage and performance data, including at the operating system, middleware and application level, and automatically correlate it with traditional system and application log data. With this integration, users can better understand historical trends and important events such as spikes in resource usage or application performance. Logging with Diamond offers deeper analysis, real-time alerting and automated graphing with important monitoring metrics, and easy correlation with other log data sources for better root cause analysis and performance optimization.

The Logentries' Shinken Plug-in is Nagios compatible and offers a historical view of critical health check data that is otherwise not captured in the standard monitoring frameworks. The integration allows users to log system data over time from their Shinken or Nagios environments, and visualize it to get better visibility into historical trends and ongoing issues. The new plug-in can provide Logentries users with real-time monitoring dashboards, as well as the ability to immediately drill into a historic view of Nagios health checks to understand the specific events and context involved.

"Our IT Ops team always goes back to the log data when we are monitoring and troubleshooting our production environments," said Geoff Scott, Head of Product and Operations at Buildingeye. "The new Diamond and Shinken Nagios plug-ins now make this even easier by allowing us to send our server-specific metrics into Logentries and quickly know how resources are being used, why spikes are occurring, and if our systems are performing as expected."

"Log data is quickly becoming recognized as the most fine-grained data source for understanding today's systems and can always be analyzed to get the most detailed historical or real-time view of what is happening," said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist at Logentries. "Our integrations with Shinken Nagios and Diamond now provide a new way to cross-correlate detailed metrics and health checks with your traditional log data in a single location for quick and powerful insight that is hard to obtain without looking at the logs."

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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
