Log analysis - it's still important

We’ve spoken to some engineers that have expressed they find log data boring. Boring? We say it’s far from boring, it’s the most contextually rich data we have, but is often ignored because of its volume and how unmanageable it can be for humans to work with. However, without automating the process and having logs pre-analyzed, one could see how this could be the perception.

Observing Google Cloud Platform Services Best Practices

Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offered by Google, is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, such as Google Search, Gmail and YouTube. Google Cloud Platform provides infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, and serverless computing environments.

Packaging Uno into the browser using WebAssembly

Back in January, we made a little CLI tool called uno available, that my colleague @alexandrepesant built. It takes log data and only shows what is a “unique” log line. It is a barebones tool showcasing one of the core parts of our product, anomaly detection, but using a simpler algorithm based on edit distance. As we saw quite a big interest when launching it, we wanted to see if we could make it available without the need to download a binary as well as giving it a proper home.

Golang Ingestion Library for Unomaly's Ingest HTTP API

Logs are generated everywhere, ranging from the printer in the corner of your office to your new application architecture running docker containers on top of Kubernetes — Regardless, to analyze any of those logs, you need to send these logs over your network to Unomaly. Traditionally, shipping logs over the network involved using the syslog protocol. While syslog still is a great standard.

Mining for execution patterns in streaming log data

Many people can’t easily enable tracing in their environment, let alone cross-application tracing of user requests. Unomaly produces both anomalies and condensed common log events (“profiles”). With a new feature we call Workflows, Unomaly allow user to look at common sequences of log events to give you a window of visibility into the execution paths that are present in your regular log events. Think of it as a simple variant of tracing, but without the effort.

New Plugin: Create Unomaly Alerts in OpsGenie

Creating alerts is a great way to make sure you don’t miss anything in Unomaly. While Slack and email are our most popular methods, we are always experimenting with new ways to integrate with the tools you prefer. Our new OpsGenie plugin for Unomaly will help users of both products stay on top of their anomalies.
