Systems We Run: A New Meetup

MeetUps are the cornerstone of any great community. Whether monthly, weekly, or semi-annually, people come together under a common umbrella to learn, discuss, socialize, and share. Most meetups focus on the good bits, the best case scenario, or talk about practice in a vacuum. Here at Humio, we...

Integrating Humio with Ballerina

The opportunity to build applications and augment them comes with a large set of choices. Choices in log management, choices in API integrators and consumers, choices in languages to use to build the services, and integrations

Humio 1.1: Introducing Views & Repos

As a Humio user you already know our concept of a ‘dataspace’. With this release, we’re abolishing that notion of dataspaces and replacing it with two separate entities: Repositories (which contain data) and Views (which only show data). Don’t worry, with the upgrade all your dataspaces have been...

Data-Driven Observability & Logs

Limiting data based on what a logging solution can handle is restrictive and often, it is the logs that were “left out” that create frustrating debugging scenarios.

Humio at Lunar Way: Log Management for a Kubernetes & Cloud Native Environment

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...

How Humio Does Scale-Out Clustering

In a Humio cluster, some nodes are arrival nodes (they actually receive the data from the real world), and you can specify which nodes should deal with ingest processing, and which nodes to use for search. The nodes responsible for search also store the underlying segment files. In the default...

Understanding Humio’s Data Sources

I just had a great question on our Slack channel today, and thought I’d write up a small blog on how to deal with ingest performance.

Chaos Observability with Humio

Building on yesterday’s article that showed how the Chaos Toolkit could now surface the commands and progress of chaos experiments into Slack, amongst other places, using the new notifications support, today it was time to take this support and integrate it into the cloud native observability...

Moving from Elastic to Humio

Optimising Performance while Minimising Resources and Complexity

Fintech Audit Trail Logging with Humio

For smaller businesses, bank charges are predictable enough not to be noticed. That’s not true for every business, though. As companies grow, so do the complexity and volume of their bank charges. BeScord, a Danish start-up, set out to change this by automating the process of reconciling bank...

What is Cloud Native, Anyway?

Cloud native applications are giving teams the right abstractions to deploy software faster than ever before possible. These applications are built to thrive in a cloud environment, which embraces automatic scaling and resiliency without single points of failure. But these environments can be...

Mesos and DC/OS Logs in Humio
