Smart Logging: Amplifying Application Logging and Tracing

Thursday, November 7, 2013
at 3:45 PM in Room E

Standard logging facilities such as log4j and syslog are very useful, but unfortunately lack many of the facilities required during problem determination. Agile development organizations and DevOps groups need turnkey, quick-to-deploy performance and diagnostics capabilities in order to improve application quality and response time. Logging would be a promising a way to accomplish this; however, many logging tools are lacking in some of the key requirements necessary.

Logging is the most common way to trace, debug and troubleshoot applications but carries with it numerous issues. A lack of structure can make it difficult to relate application activity messages spread across multiple applications multiples tiers and mobile. Logging can also be a heavy burden on application development as it takes a long time to correlate and is unhelpful in reproducing production problems. Inspecting and relating log entries is a tedious, manual process. There is a faster way – a method that brings intelligence and speed to logging and tracing.

In this session, Nastel CTO Albert Mavashev, the chief architect of Nastel’s suite of products and an expert in Java and middleware and implementing middleware-centric architectures, will discuss how to use application logging to track transactions, messages or any activity across applications for effective diagnostics and troubleshooting. Using key examples from enterprise customers, Albert will illustrate how companies can rapidly deploy a real-time performance and diagnostics service that can track and correlate activities across composite applications. Albert will also cover how to turn events into “smart events” in order to improve application quality and response time.

Key takeaways attendees will learn:
• How to use logging for diagnostics
• How real-time performance monitoring can track activities across multiple applications
• How to track event and make them “smart events” that can improve application efficiency and response time.
