Logging or monitoring? If you deploy and manage an application, these are the two key techniques available to you for helping to ensure that the application meets availability and performance expectations. One of them is Application Performance Management, or APM, though you can also find it referred to as ‘Application Performance Monitoring’ or simply ‘monitoring’. The other is log analytics and management or just ‘logging’.

When it comes to Java applications, to make sure they run at peak performance, it’s critical to close the resource gap between the code and the virtual machine it’s running on – if there is one. The way to do that is by peaking into and fine-tuning the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). However, that’s easier said than done. Many factors can influence JVM performance, and during tuning, you must consider all of them. Though, there are ways around that to make it not be such a pain.

Logs are one of the most valuable assets when it comes to IT system management and monitoring. As they record every action that took place on your network, logs provide the insight you need to spot issues that might impact performance, compliance, and security. That’s why log management should be part of any monitoring infrastructure.

A user looking for “awesome smartphone 2018” is likely really after “+review:awesome +category:smartphone +release_date:2018”. A clever use of (e)dismax might get us pretty close to where we want, but it’s not real query understanding. There are other ways, of course, like training a model that will, based on the keyword, guess which field it’s looking into.

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.
