Scalyr Announces New Troubleshooting Features
November 14, 2018

Scalyr announced collaboration features, new integrations and Kubernetes awareness to strengthen engineering and operations productivity across modern, distributed architectures. With instant insights from across all log sources and applications, Scalyr gives teams the ability to work more efficiently and cross-functionally, monitoring and troubleshooting issues easily and quickly so they can spend more time evolving their product and less time debugging.

Scalyr's integrated suite of server monitoring, log management, visualization and analysis tools enable teams to work together on code and quickly get to the bottom of issues causing downtime.

“The move to the cloud, coupled with trends such as delivering applications as microservices, has made it easier to build applications, but more complex than ever to maintain them,” said Steve Newman, CEO and cofounder of Scalyr. “We help engineers understand what’s going on with their applications and infrastructure so they can make the most of their time. These updates will give teams the ability to maximize workflow efficiency and dramatically improve collaboration.”

Scalyr makes it possible to gain insights across all log sources and applications. New features include:

- Kubernetes Cluster-Level Logging: Teams can monitor and troubleshoot Kubernetes environments by centralizing and visualizing logs. Regardless of the source, Scalyr intelligently ingests and parses logs, as well as organizes them by deployment, to give developers an application-level view for faster issue resolution in complex container environments.

- Chart Annotations: To improve collaboration among engineering and operations, chart annotations provide a way to call attention to specific points or windows of time on a dashboard chart. Annotations can be manually added to highlight potential issues and shared with team members via collaboration tools like Slack, directly from Scalyr helping developers quickly hone in on the problem at hand.

- Stack Trace Linking: To streamline debugging workflows, developers can immediately jump from their log search directly to the reference source code in their repositories. Investigating exceptions is as easy as one mouse click. Scalyr supports any web-linkable repository, such as GitHub or GitLab.

- AWS CloudWatch Support: This native integration provides an easy, scalable solution for importing logs, including serverless AWS Lambda functions and other AWS services. Engineering and operations now have a holistic view of their AWS-based applications and the ability to develop custom alerts and dashboards.

New capabilities on the Scalyr platform will be available in Q4.
