Identify and Resolve Issues through Proactive Log Management

Proactively managing logs can be critical to identifying and resolving issues within an application environment. We're excited to announce that Logentries is now available as an Engine Yard Add-on. Engine Yard customers can try it now for free. More information about Logentries on Engine Yard Cloud can be found here.

Through Logentries, users can monitor logs in real-time and get an easy to understand view across their entire application logs. Logs are analysed and visualised so that you can make sense of large volumes of log data, to quickly see and resolve system warnings or errors. Logentries can also be applied from a business analytics perspective to understand how many users registered, logged in, made payments and more over particular time periods.

Engine Yard Cloud customers can get started for free today, including 7 days of storage and a 1GB indexing limit.
