Observability and Alerts come together to enable real-time Incident Response and DevOps monitoring

Humio and PagerDuty enable faster response times to possible service disruptions.

By integrating PagerDuty with Humio you get real-time monitoring and live-alerting needed to stay ahead of any issues that could seriously impact service levels for end-users. Humio’s log management platform allows teams to instantly search, analyze, and visualize all of their data from a range of sources to be used for ad hoc searches, and live, shareable dashboards that can help to decrease response times.

PagerDuty enables teams to quickly take action, making incident response a clear and present part of their troubleshooting workflow. It sits at the heart of your technology ecosystem and analyzes digital signals from virtually any software-enabled system. It helps you intelligently pinpoint issues like outages and capitalize on opportunities, empowering teams to take the right real-time action.
