Ruby logs can be noisy and difficult to parse, potentially slowing down debugging and troubleshooting.
Having a variety of logs and long event strings makes correlating events and understanding interactions challenging.
Deployments spreading across on-prem hosts to AWS, Heroku, or other providers make organizing and managing logs complicated.
Run searches on incoming messages with the live tail feature in SolarWinds® Papertrail™. Use regular expressions to filter log messages and cut through the noise to view the most important information in real time. Apply filters to omit unrelated devices and services and home in on the messages you need. With the Papertrail CLI, you can view live tail output on the command line and use colors to highlight the parts you need to focus on. Monitor Ruby apps by turning your saved searches into alerts and schedule them to run every minute, hour, or day. You can receive notifications over email, Slack, or PagerDuty when your alerts trigger, ensuring you hear about issues before your users do.Sign up for a free plan
Reduce the time it takes to troubleshoot by trimming huge log files down to their most useful parts. With time-based filters, you can narrow your search to events taking place over a specific period, which is great for finding traffic spikes over the last 2 weeks or for discovering how many app crashes occurred this month. Creating filters based on custom fields such as session ID allows you to piece together messages from the same request and find the root cause of incidents. Clickable log elements such as IP addresses, UUIDs, and hostnames also help you navigate the chain of events and follow exceptions and crashes back to their source. The log velocity analytics feature in Papertrail makes it easy to uncover patterns and trends in your data. These interactive visualizations allow you to understand high-level details and dive into low-level events with a single click.Sign up for a free plan
