Log management and monitoring benefits

Monitoring has always been a vital part of any software infrastructure.
Monitoring system notifies you of any undesirable event. No more unnoticed security breaches, downtimes or resource depletion
Proper auto-scaling and load balancing isn't possible without monitoring. Monitoring systems provide information about load and accessibility and helps to take automated decisions about your infrastructure
IT Analytics
Monitoring is a key part of performance and cost-efficiency analysis. It allows to predict future loads and get prepared to them beforehand by scaling the infrastructure
RAM, HDD and CPU usage, application stack traces and timing, number of users per second and other metrics including completely custom ones can be gathered, stored and presented by the monitoring system
Real-time observability
Monitoring tools "catch: the anomalous behaviour and you can prevent the downtimes or undesired intervention promptly.
App troubleshooting
With IT analytics tools, you can swiftly find the bottlenecks of your infrastructure and trail poor performance of the application components.

More about log management and monitoring

Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves
- Tim Berners-Lee
Log management and monitoring tools are the satellite of any business willing to create stable and efficient software or applications. Insights help to understand the infrastructure deeper and take appropriate actions in time to prevent undesired interventions or even downtimes. So what are the use cases and best practices for logging and monitoring, and, generally, IT analytics?

IT monitoring
IT monitoring tools provide a super-detailed overview on the operational processes of each application level, statuses, reports on key metrics like average response time, server usage, cloud resources usage, CPU usage, availability rate etc. These tools gather all required information and interpret it through dashboards and data charts.

For more insights, there are two general types of monitoring reports:

  • real-time monitoring
  • trends monitoring and predictive analytics
In the first case, IT staff uses real-time monitoring tools to consistently access data from current environments and control ongoing status updates.

In the second case, monitoring and analytics enables historical data overview on trends and system behaviour patterns. It provides a long-standing view of IT ecosystem from any period you need.

Examples of metrics to track: requests and responses per second, responses per second by status, response time percentiles, system load, CPU consumption, active connections. What's interesting here - all metrics are the same for both types of tools and the only difference is the time when you receive data. For debugging purposes, you use real-time reports to get rid of bugs immediately, for performance analysis you use historical data to see trends and opportunities.

Log management

Logs are the text records of all events (for instance, transaction, messages etc) occurred while application operations happen and are kept in the journal. Consequently, logging is the process of log recording, log processing and management. Proper log recording is the crucial part of IT monitoring activities.

Recorded data in log management system is used for managing and troubleshooting of the applications. It helps make things clear and find out the reason for degraded performance or even failures and that's anything but just a little part of use cases.

Common use cases for logging:

  • Real-time tracking of events to eliminate unforeseen issues
  • System triggers the alarms upon the specific word patterns (keywords) for instant preventive actions
  • Identification of all misconfigurations and performance issues
  • Root cause analysis for further infrastructure performance optimization
  • Track metrics and KPIs
  • Meeting obligatory regulatory requirements like HIPAA, PCI, MIFiD etc

So, logs are like a treasure trove of each company, allowing to clarify the issues and - most important - prevent downtimes and serious losses.

Now you know how important it is to use these tools for IT systems enhancements and optimization. Working without log management and monitoring tools is a wild guess, just a shot in the dark - what's unacceptable in the era of tight and severe competition.
