The 15 Most Common Web Server Tags and Real-Time Alerts

  • The 15 Most Common Web Server Tags and Real-Time Alerts-

    Unauthorized Access of Directories

    Security is always important and there are lots of script kiddies out there who will attempt to gain access to resources on your system that they shouldn't. One of the common tactics is to test if they can get directory listings for possible directories on a site. Often directories are left unprotected and so if they get a listing, which includes sensitive files, they can gain access to your system. Monitor to see if your site is being asked to list directories and, if so, get notified immediately.

Log data is becoming an increasingly important indicator of companies' application, IT and overall business health. It is the go-to data when things go wrong.

More than ever before, companies are turning to logs to proactively troubleshoot in development, support real-time performance-monitoring efforts, analyze user behavior and assure security compliance. Based on Logentries' 25,000 global users who are actively analyzing and tagging critical log events in real time, the top tags fall into three critical categories: organization-wide exceptions (e.g., general browser and server issues); security-related tags (e.g., tracking SQL injection attempts to block breaches); and specific, application-level server exceptions.

In this slide show, Logentries Chief Scientist Dr. Trevor Parsons shares perspective on the 15 most common Web server tags and real-time alerts so any company can quickly start classifying log data and proactively identify common issues.
