Yoga is to ideal human health what observability is to an application’s ideal functioning. It is well established that observability is a critical factor for the successful implementation and maintenance of cloud-native, serverless, cloud-agnostic, and microservices-based applications. Well-established observability helps DevOps and development teams cross the boundaries of complex systems and get complete visibility into their functioning.

Log management has been around for a long time, but how we manage our logs has changed profoundly over the years.

We launched the Stanza log agent just over one year ago. Stanza is the result of an uncompromising stance on performance, processing, and configurability for log telemetry.
