Connecting Logs and Metrics: Logentries and Hosted Graphite

As one of the founders of Logentries, I have had the chance to meet 1000’s of our users over the past few years . Sometimes at tech talks, meet ups, trade shows or wherever our paths have crossed :).

One consistent murmur we hear is ‘graphite, graphite, graphite…’

For anyone who doesn’t know, Graphite is a widely used, near real time metrics-gathering system.

Although typically used to capture information like CPU or memory usage, Graphite is completely agnostic about the nature of the data being stored inside it. In fact, a very common use case for Graphite is to consume metrics extracted from your log data.

Today we are delighted to announce our new integration with Hosted Graphite.

Logentries hosted Graphite integration

This integration allows you to connect two of your favorite Ops tools – Logentries and Graphite. This integration will now allow you to easily grab interesting metrics from your logs and to visualize them in your hosted graphite account.

Check out our detailed blog on Hosted Graphite which describes our integration in more detail.

As always, give it a whirl and let us know your feedback in the comments below.
