Your Guide to Observability Engineering in 2024

It may sound complicated and daunting, but so much of observability is about discovering the unknown unknowns in your critical systems. The capabilities of observability engineering can help you make those discoveries. Most organizations have some form of monitoring, alerting and troubleshooting, which can be adequate to a point but fall short when trying to determine the root cause of unexpected outages.

Fixing Kafka Streams Uneven Tasks Distribution at Logz.io

At Logz.io we provide an observability platform with the ability to ship logs, metrics, and traces and then interact with them using our app. LogMetrics is an integral part of our observability offering, which bridges the gap between logs and metrics. It provides the seamless conversion of one type of signal to another. It empowers our customers to gain critical insights faster while also reducing their monitoring bill.

FOSS in Flux: Redis Relicensing and the Future of Open Source

In the past few years we’ve been witnessing tectonic shifts in the open source realm, with established projects taken off open source or otherwise turning to the dark side. On the other hand, we’ve seen active forks aiming to keep these projects open gaining momentum. What does it mean for the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement? Is this a trend or just a passing wave? What can we learn from it as vendors and as a community?

Logz.io Upgrades App 360, Kubernetes 360 with AI Assistant, New Tracing Quickview

At Logz.io, we believe the future of observability will center on the rapid advancement of automation, innovations around artificial intelligence, and streamlining processes that currently remain far too complex. This is no different than many other areas of technology, but the opportunities in observability are vast, and we see all of these areas connecting and driving improvements to the Logz.io Open 360 platform.

DevOps and SRE Metrics: R.E.D., U.S.E., and the "Four Golden Signals"

In the fast-paced realm of DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), success starts with effective monitoring. Understanding the fundamental metrics is crucial for identifying and mitigating issues proactively. In this article, we’ll delve into the leading metrics frameworks — R.E.D., U.S.E., and the “Four Golden Signals” — which will provide you with a solid foundation to enhance your monitoring practices.

Demystifying Kubernetes Observability with Generative AI and LLMs

Generative AI and large language models (LLM) are fundamentally changing the way we interact with data, especially in the realm of Kubernetes and observability. These technologies are reshaping our field, and there is a lot to understand and unpack so organizations like yours can make sense of it all. What data is important, and what isn’t? How can LLMs make my day-to-day easier, and what do I need to do to ensure I don’t get overwhelmed?

Logz.io Observability IQ Assistant: Practical AI that Helps You Work Smarter

AI has been the biggest macro-trend in technology for some time now, and the observability space is no exception to this rule. Just look at the findings of the 2024 Observability Pulse Report; it’s evident that organizations are hungry for AI capabilities that help address pervasive issues of observability process maturity, the talent shortage, ever-increasing MTTR, and the skyrocketing cost of observability.

Generative AI for Kubernetes: Meet K8sGPT Open Source Project

Troubleshooting within Kubernetes environments can be a daunting task. If we could only have a magical artificial intelligence advisor that could gather all the data about what goes on the system, and tell me what’s wrong, and even how to solve it. Wouldn’t it be nice? K8sGPT is a young open source project that uses generative AI to give Kubernetes superpowers to everyone. It recently turned a year old, and is now part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

Modern Observability 101

In technology, having “modern” capabilities is standard. Staying ahead of the curve is critical, and keeping outdated technology or processes going can be a recipe for disaster in a complex, ever-changing landscape. Ensuring the smooth functioning and performance of software systems is paramount. This is where modern observability—a sophisticated approach to monitoring and understanding the inner workings of applications and infrastructure—is required.

Does Your Observability Practice Lack Maturity? Here's What to Do.

Observability isn’t new. But organizations are struggling to adopt mature observability practices, and the impact on business is palpable. Organizations are seeing the value of observability for their applications and infrastructure—the results of our 2024 Observability Pulse survey of 500 global IT professionals reflects that across the board.
