Instana announced the availability of one-click integration with Coralogix, the first ELK based Log Analytics solution to be integrated with Instana.

Instana’s integration with Coralogix provides a seamless experience when using the solutions to troubleshoot microservices and cloud native applications. The integrated solution allows Dev and Ops team members to jump from isolating problems with Instana to drilling into platform investigation with Coralogix in the exact context, with the search criteria and date time range already set.

Achieving higher visibility is now much easier with zero to minimal configuration. With direct integration with Coralogix, Instana becomes the first and only APM solution to provide seamless integration with an ELK based Log Analytics solution.

ELK, which stands for Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana, is comprised of three open-source tools typically used for log analytics solutions. The ELK stack is designed for users to be able to search, analyze and visualize data in real-time, from any source and in any format.

“IT Operations and Dev teams tasked with delivering high performance applications want to leverage any and all resources to solve application problems,” said Chris Farrell, Technical Director and APM Strategist at Instana. “The seamless Instana integration with Coralogix enables Dev and Ops teams to quickly move from finding application problems to deeper log-based investigation with a single click.”

The integration between Instana and Coralogix is the latest one-click navigation from Instana’s automated APM solution into a log analysis tool, handled via a button in the Instana GUI on key component dashboards (i.e., Services, Containers or Kubernetes). When the button is clicked, Instana starts up an instance of Coralogix, along with a pre-executed analysis filter into the specific logs of the application components and associated infrastructure. Additionally, timing is synchronized, so users don’t have to search for the specific log or timeframe needed to solve problems.

“Coralogix is thrilled to be integrated with Instana’s APM solution,” said Ariel Assaraf, CEO and Founder of Coralogix. “This integration represents more than just having metrics and other data collected by Instana, allowing Coralogix and Instana to work seamlessly in tandem so that IT Operations can find and fix problems quicker.”

Coralogix’s machine learning-powered logging solution automatically clusters millions of log records back into their patterns and finds connections to form the baseline flows of each application. Coralogix helps accelerate CI/CD pipelines by decreasing the time to identify problematic versions and allowing teams to fix issues before reaching production. Coralogix automatically monitors and benchmarks versions from the earliest stages of development through integration with common CI/CD tools.

Instana’s automated Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution discovers all application service components and application infrastructure, including Cloud infrastructure such as Azure, orchestration infrastructure like Kubernetes and Docker, application services and DevOps processes. Instana automatically deploys monitoring sensors for each part of the application technology stack and traces all application requests – without requiring any human configuration or even application restarts. The solution detects application and infrastructure changes in real-time, adjusting its own models and visualizing the changes and impacts to performance in seconds.

The integration with Coralogix and other log analysis tools is available today in all Instana APM solutions.
