Log management strategy to help secure users working from home
April 20, 2020
Given the global occurrences we are all facing, we have entered a new era of work-from-home at scale. To cope with this new work practice, many organizations quickly granted open access to large numbers of employees – all with different roles and permissions, and an unknown number of endpoints sitting outside their firewalls. There are immediate steps Humio users can take to help secure an environment adapting to more employees working from home.
Best-of-both-worlds log management
January 15, 2020
There is an impulse among security departments to use only one solution for log management at a time, but is that really the best option? You don’t have to stick to one solution at a time, throwing out your old solution in order to gain the new features you need. Humio’s low-cost fixed rates shift the paradigm, enabling users to run it alongside other solutions and stay within their budgets — while logging everything and getting answers from all their data.

Studying the Logs - Humio gets an A+ from Lix
April 11, 2019
For new businesses and platforms that are constantly monitoring, analyzing, and organizing their logging data, keeping on top of those logs can be a frightful proposition, downright monstrous even.

Delete Events and the Act of Forgetting
April 10, 2019
Logs are meant to record the running history of your system - the application and infrastructure of what you are trying to deliver. Humio enables this observability by combining information from the past and what is happening now. In the modern world, we want to retain as much information as possible, but just as important as remembering, is the act of forgetting.

The Importance of Instant Feedback in Analytics
October 29, 2018
A feedback loop is essential for every part of the modern DevOps environment. From continuous integration and deployment to application development to infrastructure monitoring to team dynamics, feedback is the most important piece of the DevOps puzzle. But feedback is of little to zero value if it is not timely. And in the modern development world, that means instant or as near to instant as possible.
How we use Kafka
October 16, 2018
From a software provider’s point of view, fixing issues in an On-Prem solution is inherently problematic, and so we have strived to make the solution simple. To realize this goal, a Humio installation consists only of a single process per node running Humio itself, being dependent on Kafka running nearby. (We recommend deploying one Humio node per physical CPU so a dual-socket machine typically runs two Humio nodes.)

Humio at Lunar Way: Log Management for a Kubernetes & Cloud Native Environment
June 14, 2018
When Lunar Way began their journey, they started with a simple Elasticsearch and Kibana setup in AWS. Initially, the logs were small, so this was easy. As time passed and the products became more diverse and more complex, issues began to surface with usability, compatibility, and the day-to-day usefulness. The Elastic Query Language was a problem and Kibana seemed to always come with difficulties. It was obvious a change had to happen.

Fintech Audit Trail Logging with Humio

Humio — Logging for Systems That You Care About
August 22, 2017
When I was studying Computer Science in the nineties, I had a desktop workstation and I could feel its hum — the sound of the spinning disks, the interference between the network and sound cards. If something odd happened — I could often sense something was wrong because of that hum. It is the same feeling when you are on a large ship, and you sense that something is not “normal” when the vibration of the engine humming away stops suddenly.
