TL;DR – Coralogix Heroku logging addon: https://elements.heroku.com/addons/coralogix
Coralogix has recently released a logging add-on that forwards all Heroku output to a Coralogix account you specify.
Or use the CLI with:
heroku addons:create coralogix:test
I started with one instance of each, then scaled to three instances, here are the logs using
heroku logs one one instance.
And another example of mixed logs with messages from Heroku, debug messages and errors, already getting confusing.
Throw in two more workers and tracking down the source of messages is getting even more confusing. And the sample application has two applications running three workers each.
Let’s use Coralogix instead. You can open the dashboard page, or again use the CLI and see the initial display right after you start sending logs:
After 24 hours, Coralogix’ Loggregation feature will kick in to automatically cluster log entries and make finding what you need faster and easier. In the screenshot below you can see that Loggregation has identified that despite being ‘random’, the CatAPI repeats itself a lot, outputting the same value over 1,000 times. In this case, it’s not important, but in a mission critical application, this helps you identify patterns clearly.
Errors and broken flows are often introduced by new versions and builds of an application. Coralogix’s integration with Heroku includes an integration to Heroku Pipelines and offers an automatic status for new Heroku builds (or tags). Coralogix presents the suspicious and common errors introduced since that build as well as the alerts and anomalies which might be related to the new version release, thus allowing you to pinpoint issues to particular versions and points in time.
After 5 days of learning, Coralogix will start to send a daily report highlighting new anomalies (errors and critical messages), further helping you identify new errors, and not constantly bombard you with logging noise.
In addition to the machine learning aspect, Coralogix offers the entire set of Logging capabilities, including Log Query, a centralized live tail, user defined alerts to email or slack, and a fully hosted Kibana for data slicing and dashboards creation.
