Telegraf Integrations with Logz.io

Logz.io is proud to announce a slew of new integrations via Telegraf. Logz.io utilizes Prometheus in its product, but aims to support compatibility across common DevOps tools. A number of our customers, and the community in general, are strong users of Telegraf and its companion apps in the TICK Stack (which includes InfluxDB). Telegraf is not as popular as Prometheus, but it’s a strong element in the DevOps toolbox.

OpenSearch Clusters: Get Started with Install and Configuration

Our first tutorial gave a general introduction to OpenSearch installation and configuration. We recently also published a comparative introduction for OpenSearch queries (and how they parallel or contrast with Elasticsearch). Now, we’ll continue that series with an intro to OpenSearch clusters. This is a very simple tutorial with straight-forward examples, but we will try to cover some detail and common advanced settings.

Auto-Instrumenting Ruby Apps with OpenTelemetry

In this tutorial, we will go through a working example of a Ruby application auto-instrumented with OpenTelemetry. To keep things simple, we will create a basic “Hello World” application, instrument it with OpenTelemetry’s Ruby client library to generate trace data and send it to an OpenTelemetry Collector. The Collector will then export the trace data to an external distributed tracing analytics tool of our choice.

Back in June, we announced the Public Beta for Logz.io’s New Lookz – which is a new UI that completely changes the way users navigate across Logz.io products and features. The Public Beta gave users the option to toggle between the old and new UIs to see which one they liked better. And the answer from our users was as clear as it could be.

OpenSearch Queries: Query DSL and Beyond

OpenSearch has evolved rapidly since its fork from the source code of the last truly open source version of Elasticsearch. So far, the community’s work has focused on removing proprietary code from Elastic, including a number of things that were never purely open source themselves. These include some aspects of the querying languages and capabilities of Elasticsearch.

Assign Read-Only Access to Users in Logz.io

Cloud monitoring and observability can involve all kinds of stakeholders. From DevOps engineers, to site reliability engineers, to Software Engineers, there are many reasons today’s technical roles would want to see exactly what is happening in production, and why specific events are happening. However, does that mean you’d want everyone in the company to access all of the data?

Modern Security Monitoring Demands an Integrated Strategy

The ultimate success of any security monitoring platform depends largely on two fundamental requirements – its ability to accurately and efficiently surface threats and its level of integration with adjacent systems. In the world of SIEM, this is perhaps more relevant than any other element of contemporary IT security infrastructure.

Cloud-Centric PCI Compliance Demands Cloud-Native Controls

Over the last 15-plus years, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard – a.k.a. PCI DSS – has endured as the bellwether of IT security standards. For today’s e-commerce vendors and cloud centric retailers, maintaining alignment with “PCI” remains as relevant as ever, especially given the continued proliferation of threats and diversity of cloud and hybrid environments.
