Beyond Collection: Building Observability with Logs

Your logs are key to enhancing APM traces, providing metrics, detecting potential security threats, and maintaining regulatory compliance. Getting the full value from your logs requires more than just collecting and analyzing log lines.

This activity is split in two main parts:

  • Part one: We will focus on Apache logs and use them as examples to leverage log parsing, logging without limits, log monitors, and log analytics.
  • Part two: We will use a real application fully instrumented to demonstrate how logs can bring context to your metrics and traces.
