Log data analysis has traditionally been a forensic tool. The vast amount of machine data contained in log records has always been too unwieldy for real-time analysis and, therefore, has been difficult to integrate into infrastructure performance monitoring workflows. Instead, network engineers have relied on data sources that enable near-real-time analysis, such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) polling, flow analysis, and packet analysis. If and when network managers did turn to log analysis, it was only to understand an event long after it happened. But the log analytics status quo is changing. Increasingly, network managers are looking for ways to integrate log data into their overall performance management toolsets. This paper examines how log analytics can enhance network performance management. It also looks at how one solution from SevOne combines device metric analysis and network flow analysis with real-time log analytics to enhance network visibility and streamline triage and diagnostics workflows.
