TIBCO LogLogic’s roots are in managing log data and providing security services, but as the market has evolved, we must too.
Explosion of Machine Data
LogLogic has expanded to include all sorts of machine data. As the variety of data we collect has grown, we’ve seen massive increases in the number of events we collect each second. Our largest installation is now collecting about a million messages per second—nearly double the number from just one year ago.
Expansion of Use Cases for Machine Data
Log data has always been closely related to the SIEM market; Gartner doesn’t even distinguish between the two. However, log and machine data aren’t just for SIEM anymore. There is a burgeoning new market, operational intelligence, that uses machine data for operational analysis. The insights gained from these analyses are then fed back into systems to identify root causes, monitor service levels, predict future performance, and much more.
In our most recent release, available today, we’ve made product changes that satisfy your growing machine data management needs. Furthermore, this update can help you take advantage of machine data and gain operational intelligence.
64-Bit Architecture Support
I recently saw a cloud-based logging provider blog about its technical challenges in trying to handle 100,000 events per second. We’ve achieved 10x that performance on a 32-bit platform. With the additional memory addressing space and other benefits that come with a move to 64-bits, our ability to scale will be even more impressive.
By taking components from our industry-leading analytics platform, Spotfire, and integrating them with our machine data, we are enabling an entirely new era of productivity and insight—especially for security and IT operations. In one of our demos, we mash up geographic data with VPN access points. In this scenario, high failure rates on logins from Kazakhstan just jump off the screen! These kinds of insights, which have long been hidden in tabular reports, are there for everyone working in the SOC or NOC to find.
If you can’t tell, I’m quite excited about our new release of LogLogic and how we can use machine data to help customers drive the top line. To learn more about our latest product release, click here. Of course, please comment below or feel free to reach out to me personally.
