In advance of the Heroku
conference in San Francisco, Papertrail Inc. announced that its Papertrail cloud-hosted
log management service has been adopted by thousands of applications on
the Heroku platform.
"We're thrilled and honored that so many developers, entrepreneurs, and
enterprises have selected Papertrail to obtain deep visibility into
their Heroku Web services," said Troy Davis, co-founder and CEO.
"In about 10 seconds, any Heroku user can obtain detailed, infinitely
customizable knowledge of what their applications are actually doing, in
a format that's meaningful to them," he added.
Log messages give engineers the deeper story behind infrastructure
problems, such as to identify the causes of slow performance, determine
the impact of a software bug, and investigate API-level conversations
between interdependent services.
Log management provides end-to-end application awareness that developers
can tailor to their service's operational characteristics. That
flexibility is critical when troubleshooting complex distributed
Davis, who spoke at the first Heroku Waza in 2012, said, "Heroku makes
logging easy, and Papertrail gives engineers the tools to understand and
react to these events. Now Papertrail has been proven in thousands of
Heroku Web services."
With Heroku's "polyglot" Cedar application stack, developers and devops
engineers can deploy and scale any common application stack, such as
Ruby on Rails, Java servlets, PHP, Python with Django, and Scala with
Play. That adaptability calls for powerful, understandable
troubleshooting tools which work across all languages and stacks, a need
which Papertrail on Heroku satisfies. Additionally, developers can use
their preferred logging library, like Java logback or log4j, Ruby
lograge, Python SysLogHandler, or Winston for Node.js.
"Papertrail makes engineers more productive because it was created to
solve the real problems that we had encountered ourselves," said Eric
Lindvall, CTO of Papertrail. To help users make the most of their logs,
Papertrail recently added effortless log filtering and a Dashboard
Finder quick navigation interface.
Lindvall noted that, "Heroku customers appreciate practicality and they
value their own time. As thousands of engineers have seen, activating
Papertrail on Heroku really is a single command."
Papertrail staff will be available at the Heroku Waza conference on
February 28, 2013. Papertrail is currently available in the Heroku Add-on
Marketplace and as a standalone service.
Papertrail Inc. operates the Papertrail
hosted log management service, which brings smiles to the faces of
systems engineers, developers, and entrepreneurs. Everyone deserves
great logging. Sign up and log to the cloud™ at http://papertrailapp.com/
