Alert Birds (by Loggly)

Alert Birds LogoOur good friends at Loggly are hosting a webinar on Getting Started with Alert Birds tomorrow (Oct 11) at 10am PDT.

Just in case you haven’t heard of Loggly, they do logging as a service. Alert Birds is a new application built on top of Loggly which allows you to set up automatic real-time searches over your log files. It allows you to detect exceptions, security problems, performance issues, or any type of custom search you can think of.

By default, if you leave the Alert Birds webapp open, it plays ambient bird sounds when various things happen in your logs (hence the name). Alert Birds can also integrate with PagerDuty: you can set it up so that if something bad happens in your log files, Alert Birds tells PagerDuty and we alert the on-call person via phone call, SMS or email.

If you want to learn more about setting all of this up, please sign up for the webinar here (but you have to hurry as time is running out).
