Logentries announced a real-time integration with Google Cloud Platform.

The Logentries log management and analytics service integrates with Google Cloud Logging to offer Google Cloud Platform customers’ an easily configurable choice for log management and advanced analytics including anomaly detection.

The new integration leverages the Google Cloud Publisher-Subscriber (Pub-Sub) API, which provides reliable, many-to-many, asynchronous messaging between Google Cloud Platform and Logentries, for easy communication between services.

“We understand that Log Management and Analytics is a critical customer need and are excited to offer Google customers a choice to easily send logs to a key provider like Logentries,” said Deepak Tiwari, Product Manager, Google Cloud. “Many of Google Compute Engine customers already use Logentries for advanced log analysis. This integration enables customers to use Logentries for Google App Engine and services like Cloud Dataflow as well and makes it even easier to get started. At Google, we are committed to creating an open ecosystem with easy path of integration for partners, and Logentries provides a great example of a leading partner.”

Today’s distributed, cloud-based environments produce billions of machine-generated data, making separate tools for monitoring, alerting, troubleshooting and analyzing data across systems, applications and end users completely unmanageable. Organizations need a single tool to monitor, alert and analyze multiple data sources using one shared data format.

The Logentries and Google Cloud Platform integration provides a meaningful choice for real-time event monitoring, alerting, advanced analytics, and data visualizations to Google customers for a better understanding of their system and application activity and performance. With this visibility, users can monitor and alert on critical activity and exceptions across their apps, including anomaly detection, inactivity alerting, and end user experience metrics.

In addition to data from applications and VMs, logs collected from Google Cloud Platform also contain metadata with every log entry, giving users valuable information, including the exact time any log entry was created, the origins (resource or instance) of each entry along with its security level. With the integration between Logentries and Google Cloud Platform, users can easily:

- Build data visualizations with streaming log data from apps hosted on Google Cloud Platform and VMs hosted on Google Compute Engine.

- Receive real-time alerts on events, inactivity and anomaly detection from Google App Engine and Google Compute Engine.

- Correlate events from Google App Engine with Google Compute Engine to help identify the root cause of issues.

“The Google Cloud Pub/Sub API is a powerful service for routing messages from multiple cloud and third party resources at scale,” explained Trevor Parsons, Co-founder and Chief Scientist of Logentries. “With the new Logentries integration Google customers are now able to generate powerful correlations, visualizations and alerts from disparate sources of application and system-level data – all in real time.”
