Hi, Our team recently has certain error scenarios found in multiple production sites. As of today we're monitoring specific exception (via keyword match or Regex expression) via LogicMonitor and trigger alert to be generated. This solution has few drawbacks: 1. Requires us to know ahead what're the specific exception(s) to monitor in each log file (e.g. Tomcat, ActiveMQ) 2. Requires us to download all the logs from each production site that has this issue (some of our customers requires VPN/Secure access and it's very inefficient to download these logs from each site to analyze) Our team then run a quick log streaming POC and discovered datadog is one of the vendors that provides a decent log streaming solution (to the cloud) and allow us to search & perform analytics (see https://www.datadoghq.com/log-management/). It'll be great if LogicMonitor can implement something similar to enable us to elasticsearch these logs in the cloud to enable faster troubleshooting analysis. Thanks & Best Regards, Horace
This datasource monitors the solr logs via an http call to the web front end and parses the json response to output in a LogicMonitor-friendly format. This appears to work on all of the versions of Solr I have tested on (6.0+). *Note - I have disabled the applies-to on this datasource because it can be quite noisy if your logging hasn't been tuned on the Solr nodes. I did include some useful filters to strip out some of the more common noise - but I still recommend applying this with caution. W9PN3Y
One thing everybody is looking for is convergence, a single tool that does everything for observability. Monitoring, metrics, log analysis - LM does a good job on the first two, but I still need a separate tool to get useful metrics and trends out of my application logs. LM should look into adding ELK-as-a-Service to the LM feature stack (provide customers with an API endpoint they can feed logs to or something), and then customers could have service-level monitoring (URL response times, etc.), plus the traditional LM suite of monitors/metrics, plus LM Cloud, *plus* the most useful info of all: data mined from application logs. That's generally where the really good insights come from (and most of what's unique to each customer's business/offering). ELK is well-known, open source, and fairly mature. Relatively easy to scale as well; should be easy for LM engineering to put together for a proof of concept anyway. Meanwhile, I'm looking at things like Papertrail, Librato and Logz.io for my application logs - but I'd really like to have One Tool to Rule Them All.
The Windows EventSources monitoring has been very useful for us, and we were hoping to be able to replicate the same with vSphere's logging (vCenter, vpxd, etc). Right now our only alternative is leveraging VMware's "Log Insight" tool, but we were hoping to have this integrated into LogicMonitor so we're not duplicating monitoring across separate monitoring tools.
