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

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

    Deploy Error

    With a lot of systems deploying regularly to production, errors in the deploy process can lead to major issues for the application. The most common way to deliver a new or updated application to a Tomcat server is in the form or a WAR file. This is just a zipped-up version of all the required files for the application. The problem occurs if the file has been poorly created or has been corrupted in transit, thus creating an error when the file is unzipped. In order to avoid unexpected failures during extraction of the WAR file, the Tomcat server generated logs should be monitored for this ZipException and a notification set up to alert those involved.

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.
