Going Beyond Infrastructure Observability: Meta's Approach

What’s the ultimate goal of bringing observability into an organization? Is it just to chase down things when they’re broken and not working? Or can it be used to truly enable developers to innovate faster? That’s a topic I recently discussed with David Ostrovsky, a software engineer at Meta, the parent company of social media networks Facebook and Instagram among others. He was my guest on the most recent episode of the OpenObservability Talks podcast.


Elasticsearch vs Splunk - Which tool to choose for Log Management?

Developing software is an art in itself. From building to shipping, developers have to keep iterating the process to make improvements to the existing ones. Developers around the world spend hours on building quality logging into their applications. But this logging is only efficient when we have one-page or two-page applications where debugging through logs is relatively easy.


The Basics of Using AWS EventBridge for Observability

As you adopt modern, serverless, microservices-based architectures, it can become more challenging to monitor and understand the state of your applications at any given time. That’s where event bus capabilities from services like Amazon EventBridge can come in handy. AWS EventBridge can help you build loosely coupled, event-driven architectures and applications, and deploy new features faster.


Wait... Elastic Observability monitors metrics for AWS services in just minutes?

The transition to distributed applications is in full swing, driven mainly by our need to be “always-on” as consumers and fast-paced businesses. That need is driving deployments to have more complex requirements along with the ability to be globally diverse and rapidly innovate.


Cribl Search: An Innovative New Way to Search Observability Data

These days, administrators typically have to deploy multiple tools to search through all of their datasets – then they get to spend the little free time they have left over dreaming of a world where they could search multiple distributed datasets simultaneously, similar to existing web search tools. They might have one tool for Splunk, another for Elastic, and some may even still be using grep or some other cumbersome function to search non-correlated data.


Why Centralized Log Management? Understanding the Use Cases

Centralized log management provides various benefits across an organization. The fundamentals of log management offer a wide variety of business use cases. Whether you’re managing event log data manually or realizing you need more than an Open Source solution, finding the right internal champions can make your life easier. Understanding the business use cases and strategic impact centralized log management provides can help you gain the internal buy-in you need.
