Amazon Web Services (AWS) Fargate is a serverless compute engine for containers that works on Amazon ECS and EKS. AWS FireLens is a log routing agent built for ECS containers and enables administrators to use task definition attributes to route logs to external log aggregators. AWS FireLens unifies data collection across the ECS cluster, and its pluggable architecture allows adding data sources, parsers, filters/buffering, and output plugins.

In a previous article, we took you through how AWS FireLens works and configuring AWS FireLens to forward AWS Fargate logs for unification and analysis on LOGIQ. While that guide still holds good…

Why do you keep logs? Regardless of the type of logs we’re talking about, you keep them because you expect them to provide some value for the organization. Maybe the logs will help you improve profitability; perhaps they will help you recover from downtime or perhaps they are expected to alert you to a security incident in progress.

In a previous article, we showed you how to deploy your favourite application on MicroK8s using a Helm chart. In that article, we used the LOGIQ Helm chart as the example application we were deploying on MicroK8s. This article will take an in-depth look at how we deploy LOGIQ for our customers on MicroK8s, mapped to a custom domain and with HTTPS enabled.

Our typical deployment of LOGIQ on MicroK8s includes the following steps.

  • Enabling add-ons
  • Creating the logiq namespace
  • Assigning wildcard certificates and your custom domain
  • Installing LOGIQ on MicroK8s
  • Enabling and configuring ingress

Shift from API Monitoring to API Observability with LOGIQ

APIs — by now, we’re all familiar with the term. Every service or software we use or build today either uses or is an API. If APIs are a central pillar in your building and delivery of software and services, you’ll know that the success of your software or services depends on the integrity, availability, and performance of your APIs. Traditional API monitoring sure does help you stay on top of uptime, security, and performance. Still, it is limited to being a black box form of monitoring — you’re only testing API behavior that you’d only see externally. …
