Logtrust Integration Guide

Logtrust describes itself as cognition as a service; it was designed to transform raw data into actionable business insights.The Logtrust workflow can be summarized as follows: add your data; analyze and discover patterns and trends, using Logtrust’s proprietary technology; generate reports and alerts to visualize the end result. By aggregating and intelligently acting on everything from system logs to database records, you can use low-level data to inform high-level decision-making.If you are having trouble completing the installation, please contact us.

    Can I set up Logtrust to work with multiple PagerDuty services?

    No; you can only associate your delivery settings with one PagerDuty service at a time.

    If something is resolved in Logtrust, is it also resolved in PagerDuty?

    No, it is not; you will have to resolve the incident separately in PagerDuty.

    It doesn’t seem to be working. What’s going on?

    Setting up Logtrust requires some working knowledge of your directory and system internals that may take some time to work through. Check your logs and contact Logtrust for assistance. In addition, feel free to contact us if you’re unable to sort out the difficulty.
