The Cribl blog covers Observability, Big Data Analytics, Data Streams Processing... and anything else we feel like writing about!
As 2020 comes to a close, I have spent some time reflecting on some of our engineering achievements and, more importantly, lessons of the past few years. I am documenting them openly as much for our current Criblanians but also for those who are considering joining us.
In this holiday-inspired blog post, we will show you 12 gifts that Cribl LogStream provides anyone trying to make sense of large, complex data sets.
As a leading time series database, InfluxData is a popular destination for LogStream data. LogStream collects and shapes ingested data, transforming it into metrics and sending that data to InfluxDB. Additionally, LogStream can send its internal metrics to InfluxDB for easier observability of its own performance. This article explores both options, as well as how […]
In this episode, we are starting to talk about the shift from isolated monitoring applications to holistic observability and the machine learning data pipeline. This discussion with former Gartner analyst Nick Heudecker is the beginning of an ongoing topic which we will continue to discuss in future episodes so stay tuned for more! If you […]
Cribl continues to expand our functionality for Kubernetes. Next up is the availability of a Helm chart to install and configure a Cribl LogStream master instance on a Kubernetes cluster, and I’m happy to announce that that is available now in our helm-charts repository.
Several years ago, I decided to move something really important to me to the Cloud: my music. Like many of you back in the day, I’m sure, I had several of those huge binders with the plastic sleeves inside, and they were filled to the brim with CDs. Eventually though, I got frustrated with my collection.
After seven-plus years as an industry analyst at Gartner, I decided it was time to get off the sidelines and get back to building things again. When an opportunity to join Cribl became available, I leapt at the chance.
Observability is the ability to create a view into systems so you can monitor their state from outside the system itself – or in other words, the ability to answer questions you may not have planned for in advance – everything from “What did this user do yesterday?” to “how did the application perform?” and […]
A common meme relating to tech projects is “Cheap, fast, good – pick 2.” The idea is that you can often achieve two of these, but because of tradeoffs among these dynamics, you can rarely achieve all three. For example, if you choose good and fast, it will probably cost you a lot more, and […]
