The solution to improving modern application management can be found in one of the most overlooked IT assets: machine data. Machine data consists of oceans of unstructured and semi-structured log files and structured time-series metrics. Managing log files and metrics requires a solution that, unlike today’s home-grown and on-premises packaged solutions, is built from the ground up to scale to the volume, variety and velocity of today’s rapidly proliferating machine data and can unify logs and metrics for unprecedented application visibility. Cloud-native platforms offer the best delivery option as they are designed from the ground up for elasticity, scalability and self-service.
This informative whitepaper outlines the different ways in which the next generation in machine data analytics can dramatically improve your modern applications performance—and thus your business performance. The five steps to better application monitoring and troubleshooting can help you reduce application downtime, become more proactive and optimize the customer experience.
