Monitoring, log management, transaction tracing, and real user monitoring. Finally together!

Sematext is a globally distributed organization that builds innovative Cloud and On Premise solutions for infrastructure and application performance monitoring and log management. We also offer expert professional services - consulting, production support, and training - for Solr and Elasticsearch / Elastic Stack to clients worldwide.

Tired of switching between monitoring/logging/alerting tools when rushing to fix a production issue?

  • Infrastructure Monitoring: View your whole infrastructure in real-time with out-of-the-box dashboards, alerts and anomaly detection rules, events, server and container details, etc.
  • Transaction Tracing: Get full application health visibility by end-to-end tracing of request execution across multiple applications, tiers, servers, microservers, and processes.
  • Log Management: Seamlessly switch between metrics and logs when troubleshooting to save time and reduce downtime. Ship data to a hosted, fully managed Elastic Stack to avoid infrastructure, maintenance hassle and costs.
  • Real User Monitoring: Don’t lose customers due to a bad performance-related experience. Detect anomalies and receive alerts when user experience is affected by page loads, ajax requests, UI interactions.

For smart DevOps teams that want to move faster.

Logtrail is a popular Kibana plugin that makes Kibana look like Papertrail. Sematext’s Logtrail view in Kibana gives you the terminal-like experience of exploring logs without the pain of needing to ssh into machines. With Logtrail you can see new logs appearing at the bottom of the screen instead of the top screen, you can filter logs like with grep, and “jump” to different parts of the log stream like when using less.

Your software stack likely consists of web servers, search engines, queues, databases, etc. Each part of your stack emits its own metrics and logs. Depending on the size of your team and structure, different team members might have permissions to look at one set of data, but not the other. Some data is needed for troubleshooting and can be discarded after just a few days, while more important data might need to be kept for months for legal or capacity planning purposes.
