Take a Tour of Our Data Flow

Configure - Out-of-the-box configuration that saves engineering time


Automatic out-of-the-box configuration

Select which data streams you’d like us to harvest. Through our web console, enable integrations for DevOps applications like MySQL, Nginx, or Microsoft IIS. Each can be easily enabled with a single click.

Within 5 minutes, your configuration is automatically synchronized to all your running agents. We call this “checking in.” Our agent is responsible for retrieving new config, renewing auth tokens, and downloading updates.

In serverless architectures, we gather data in near real-time (depending on your cloud provider). Serverless and agent-based integrations can be used in the same account for easy management.



The smart agent extracts all your data

Our software automatically configures itself after discovering your unique architecture.

Our centralized log management tool, Lumberjack, intelligently detects the location and format of all your logs and parses them into key-value pairs for better searching and analysis.

Similarly, our server monitoring tool, Watchdog, detects all your important system metrics without any config required.

Our smart agent takes a trivial amount of system resources: less than 2% CPU and 20 MBs memory. And we do this whether you’re running on Linux, Windows Server, cloud, or on-premise.



Data security and redundancy

Once we’ve parsed your mission-critical server data, we upload it to our infrastructure using 2048-bit SSL encryption.

The upload is complete when all records have been replicated to multiple, distinct data centers for redundancy.

Data is queued for upload using up to 1 second of buffering. And because our agent uses 90% gzip compression, uploading is incredibly quick and easy on your network.



Downtime-preventing magic

Our AI-powered stream processor analyzes all the data and looks for anomalies, problems, and trends. Assuming your system is healthy at least 75% of the time, our artificial intelligence identifies healthy characteristics of your servers, applications, and infrastructure. It learns growth, decay, and seasonality to fine-tune thresholds on the fly.

False positives are squashed using quorum mechanics. And false negatives are quelled because of dynamic thresholds, which automatically configure and change over time. This is unlike static thresholds you may be used to setting up manually and receiving false alerts from.

Other tools typically poll in 5-minute intervals. But ours doesn't need to — our stream processor handles it in real time. And because our alerts predict future incidents — not just past events — the result is 15 extra minutes for your engineers to solve problems before they strike.



Highly available, durable data storage

Once analyzed, all data is indexed and stored in our databases across multiple availability zones in AWS. These databases scale linearly, encrypt at rest, and are backed up regularly.

This means the data is completely searchable and immediately displayed after entering a query. Blue Matador's proprietary sharding system means results are shown instantly. Our storage mechanism allows us to search through terabytes in seconds.

For compliance and peace of mind, we also archive your data in multiple regions.



Access data when you need it

Our web console helps you visualize and retrieve log data with dashboarding, widgets, and a log explorer that drills down to individual log entries. And our unified monitoring platform also gives you a single pane of glass to see the exact data points you need when it predicts your impending downtime events.

We let you retrieve stored data for as long as your chosen plan provides. And our public API means you have programmatic access any time you need it.
