    • We just released the SolarWinds® AppOptics Dev Edition, a new, free version of AppOptics (APM) aimed at helping developers gain visibility into an application's performance during the development cycle to ship code faster with fewer bugs. Read More

     

    • The Loggly GitHub integration makes it easy to view the source code related to a Loggly event. You can also identify what changes were made recently to the source code, send your Loggly event items to GitHub Issues, link your stack traces to the code where it happened, resolve items when a particular commit is deployed, and show the commits that were included with each deploy. Loggly can integrate with JIRA and GitHub, so you can manage Loggly-detected errors in your existing workflow. Read More

     

    • You can use Loggly to aggregate Jenkins X logs and monitor the status of your builds. Jenkins X (JX) is an exciting new Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) tool for Kubernetes users. It hides the complexities of operating Kubernetes by giving developers a simpler experience to build and deploy their code. You can think of it as creating a serverless-like environment in Kubernetes. As a developer, you don’t need to worry about all the details of setting up environments, creating a CI/CD pipeline, or connecting GitHub to your CI pipeline. All of this and much more is handled by JX. In this article, we’ll introduce you to JX, show you how to use it, and how to monitor your builds and production deployments. Read More

     

    • Logs and metrics record different kinds of data essential to observability. Logs provide contextual data about specific events and occurrences, while metrics provide periodic snapshots of an application or host’s state. Treating these as independent resources makes sense from an operational perspective, but both are necessary to gain a complete view of your infrastructure. For example, a host failure could cause a sudden change in metrics that could only be explained by viewing the host’s logs. Read More
