4 Killer Coralogix Tracing Features
Tracing is often the last thought in any observability strategy. While engineers prioritize logs and metrics, tracing is truly the hallmark of a mature observability platform,…

In the world of observability, there are several distinct problems to solve. Fast queries, intuitive visualizations, scalable storage, and more. The technical problems receive the most attention; however, there is another, more subtle problem. How do observability platforms facilitate collaboration on the scale needed by organizations?
The ability for humans to effectively share that data is the bottleneck for how quickly decisions can be made and actions can be taken. For us at Coralogix, it’s clear that the ability for engineers to collaborate impacts every other aspect of the operational and software development process. This is why we’ve invested in a collection of features that our customers can use to share insights easily, automate toil, and minimize the time it takes to make informed, data-driven decisions.
While other providers allow their users to share queries via the URL, at Coralogix, we’ve taken this to the next level. Everything from column order, sort and filter parameters, time range, even logs highlighted in the UI, and much more persist when Coralogix users share their link.
This means, rather than exporting your data from Coralogix to create a report, or providing detailed instructions of which timeframe to use, coupled with the appropriate filter parameters, simply send the link, and your colleagues will see the same view. Shareable views enable the fast exchange of information, with minimal confusion and loss, and turns the Coralogix platform into more than an observability platform – it becomes a discovery and insights platform.
When a team releases a new feature, there is a brief and frantic moment of hypercare. Different team members check different dimensions – some might be reviewing specific application logs, while others are looking at application or infrastructure metrics. Collecting information in one place takes a lot of work. It’s even more challenging to determine if the errors are new.
At Coralogix, we understand this process intimately, and we’ve built the Coralogix Tagging UI to automate many of the checks engineers perform after pushing a new release. However, the Tagging UI isn’t limited to change tracking – any event can be tagged and compared. For example, tracking error rates during a Black Friday sale.
Within any organization, there are typically a handful of people who understand the most complex failure scenarios. These failure scenarios span many different services and are tracked across multiple values. These failure scenarios are challenging to monitor and even more difficult to communicate.
Coralogix Flow Alerts allows Coralogix customers to codify this tribal knowledge and create self-documenting, highly intelligent alerts that will automatically track distributed failure scenarios across all observability data. This minimizes the reliance on a small number of people to deeply understand all of the major failure scenarios.
The ability of your team to deliver hinges on its information-sharing capabilities. If information remains siloed, even the best insights in the world will be limited. This is why Coralogix furnishes our customers with a vast collection of features that directly facilitate fluid collaboration and speed up information transfer within and between engineering teams.
Once this barrier is out of the way, the only thing left to consider is how many issues you and your team want to resolve.
