A few months back we’ve silently built and open-sourced an Android SDK for shipping logs from mobile apps to Sematext Cloud.  This library not only lets you send your Android app logs for troubleshooting purposes, but it also let’s you collect app usage for analytics purposes!  In other words, shipping logs and usage events from an Android app will give you the ability to both troubleshoot issues with the app, as well as let you gain insights about  your app’s usage, adoption, etc. The library sends data in batches to preserve battery (every 60s), or if there are more than 10 events queued up. Events are saved while the device is offline so you don’t have to worry about losing any data. By default the library keeps up to 5,000 events while offline. All of this is taken care of by our Android Service, which you will want to configure. To summarize, what this library ... (more)

Introducing Instant Templates & Mappings

Logsene, our hosted ELK stack now part of Sematext Cloud, exposes the Elasticsearch API. As a Logsene user you may or may not be aware of this.  If you have experience with Elasticsearch though, if you’re aware of its rich ecosystem of tools, you know how valuable this is.  Besides using the Logsene UI, Kibana, or Grafana to search your logs or build charts and dashboards, you can also query all your data via Logsene’s Elasticsearch API.  You can search your logs, filter them, run aggregation queries, use scan and scroll to retrieve large ranges of your data, etc. Index Template...

Top @Docker Metrics | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #APM #ML #Monitoring

Container Monitoring: Top Docker Metrics to Watch By Stefan Thies Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resources of one or more unde... (more)

Node.js and io.js Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Node.js and io.js Monitoring Support By Stefan Thies Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, Spark, Hadoop, and HBase, as well... (more)

Account Sharing in SPM, Logsene and Site Search Analytics By @Sematext | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Using Cloud (aka SaaS) applications is natural for most of us — simply sign up with your email, login and then use the service within minutes.  The Cloud works particularly well with consumer-oriented services. Businesses, however, have slightly different needs. Up until now, Sematext Apps offered only App sharing.  For instance, if you had an SPM App for monitoring your Elasticsearch cluster, another SPM App for monitoring Spark, and a Logsene App where you shipped all your logs, you could invite one or more of your teammates to each one of those apps separately, and give them ...
