Loggly's Real-Time Derived Fields Speed Up Log Management
New capability enables users to specify customized parsing rules that generate derived fields as metadata during the data ingestion process.Log analysis management just got a whole lot more automated and easier to deploy. Loggly, a cloud-based, enterprise-class log management provider, on June 16 introduced Loggly Derived Fields. This new capability, inside Loggly Pro and Enterprise, enables users to specify customized parsing rules that generate derived fields as metadata during the data ingestion process. This adds up to real-time, navigable views using the Loggly Dynamic Field Explorer platform, giving users access to more sophisticated log analysis. The Derived Fields capability provides intelligence and structure that automatically catalog and summarize logs for one-click navigation and analysis. Using Derived Fields with Field Explorer, development and DevOps teams can troubleshoot problems faster, more effectively monitor their log data for emerging issues, and do sanity checks after code releases without relying on time-consuming manual queries.
Derived Fields expands the functionality of the flagship interface of Dynamic Field Explorer. While most traditional log management solutions are designed with the search box as the primary interface, Field Explorer generates navigable lists and summaries to deliver a guided search experience.
