Log data has a long history of being difficult to work with. Almost every system, component, and application can generate massive amounts of unstructured data just cryptic enough to dissuade the typical administrator from harnessing the value it holds. Much of the time, log data is viewed only when something isn’t working. When issues occur, deciphering logs for a particular application or component is typically left to technical support professionals, who are the only ones to understand the nuances of the log data being generated.

Many perceive log data as nothing more than an insurance policy for when something goes wrong. This perception implies that if everything is functioning as expected, then there is little value to log data. This misconception overlooks one of the key benefits log data can provide for you and your environment. When used correctly, with the right tools, log data can provide context and understanding to changing conditions in the data center. Alarm mechanisms, while important, often indicate just a state or condition, and can be transient, only remaining visible during the period of time the alarm threshold is met. Log data tells a much more detailed story, and does so over time. Log analytics can complement other forms of information gathering, such as performance graphs, and alarms. Capitalizing on the intelligence buried in log data is a superb opportunity to manage a data center in a smarter way.
