Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (AWS EC2) is one of the most popular ways to run applications in the cloud, but finding logs for a given instance is a common struggle. That’s where Loki can help. With Loki aggregation, you can group all your logs from all your virtual machines in one place, and with its search capabilities, you can quickly find and analyze them. It’s a great way to gain visibility in your cloud deployment.

Nothing is more frustrating than feeling like you’ve finally found the perfect trace only to see that you’re missing critical spans. In fact, a common question for new users and operators of Jaeger, the popular distributed tracing system, is: “Where did all my spans go?” In this post we’ll discuss how to diagnose and correct lost spans in each element of the Jaeger span ingestion pipeline.

Over the past few years, NGINX users have naturally gravitated toward Grafana, and vice versa. These days, it’s not uncommon to see these two open source tools used together in the wild. And for good reason. F5, which acquired NGINX last year, is prioritizing building visibility across the entire product set, to make it easy for customers to quickly gain the insights that they need. Meanwhile, Grafana has evolved into the primary visualization and analysis tool in the open source market.

Dashboard sprawl is a real problem whether you’re using Grafana or any other tool. When growing to thousands of users – and as many dashboards – you’ll eventually want more information about how the tool is being used in your organization. After all, dashboards don’t help anyone if they aren’t being used. Managing large installations is one of the areas where Grafana Enterprise improves Grafana, and our launch of usage insights in 7.0 is a key part of that.

Hi folks! Éamon here. I’m a recent-ish addition to the Solutions Engineering team and just getting my feet wet on the blogging side so bear with me. :) Back in March, we introduced the Grafana Cloud Agent, a remote_write-focused Prometheus agent. The Grafana Cloud Agent is a subset of Prometheus without any querying or local storage, using the same service discovery, relabeling, WAL, and remote_write code found in Prometheus.

Get a sneak preview of a future version of Grafana Loki that enables you to generate ad-hoc metrics from your log data. This video features a Loki-based web analytics dashboard, which uses the access logs of the popular open-source web server NGINX. Every panel on this dashboard uses ad-hoc metrics created with Loki, well, besides the Log panel obviously. Would this be useful for your use-case? Let us know in the comments.

In this webinar, Marcus will show you how to get started using Grafana. He’ll walk you through the Grafana user interface while showing how to set up monitoring for a web service that uses Prometheus and Loki to store metrics and logs. You’ll learn how to connect, explore, and correlate data in Grafana to gain valuable insights into your application. This webinar requires no previous experience with Grafana.

Did you know that Grafana pairs well with a fine wine? That’s what machine learning company ML6 discovered when they worked with their client Accolade Wines, an award-winning Australian vintner whose goal was to decrease the waste produced in its global operations. ML6 used Grafana and machine learning to reduce wine waste and deliver a 200% ROI for Accolade Wines in the first six months, reducing the company’s financial loss by an estimated £75,000.
