Improve Your Observability Pipeline Using Metrics

Axoflow’s Approach to Overcome Traditional Logging Challenges and Enhance Your IT Operations


Modern observability: don’t leave traditional logging behind!

As applications and associated IT infrastructure have shifted to the cloud, a whole new class of application and system monitoring capability has arisen to overcome traditional logging shortcomings – and this capability is called observability. However, most enterprises don’t simply “flip a switch” and transition entirely to the cloud; instead, they operate in a hybrid sense, perhaps permanently. 

To address the reality of today’s hybrid enterprise, traditional logging needs to “unleash its shackles” and seamlessly coexist with these newer cloud-native architectures. 

In this white paper, you will see how the capabilities of modern observability can be applied to traditional “on-prem” logging as well, solving some of the most challenging age-old problems of logging – buffering, data drops, and poor data visibility and quality. We will introduce the use of metrics in traditional (syslog-ng) and cloud-native log pipeline settings, and show how these metrics inform a telemetry management plane that gives you complete control of your pipeline.
