The TLS implementation in Java 7 suffers from several problems that make it impossible to run properly secure TLS servers. All of these problems have been addressed in Java 8, which offers a very good TLS stack.
Last week I wrote a post on how to log from Docker containers. In short I was playing around with Docker and wanted to try to figure out how to get some log data from my containers. Interestingly I got some great feedback from the Docker community on this post. Mostly asking why I didn’t run rsyslog outside the container on the host. This led to a bigger investigation and it looks like there is...
When you are in the log management business, who manages your logs? Well, you do, of course. The proverbs of old, though, tell you this can sometimes be a very bad idea. So here at Logentries we’ve decided to learn these lessons and invest time using our own product for what it was designed for: to monitor our own production systems, to debug software issues, to troubleshoot operational issues...
Current virality of five year old article defending Java demonstrates that hate for the language is still in style - but why do users continue to care?

65% of Java users questioned by Typesafe are planning to upgrade to new release in next two years, and 73% are excited to get on board with Project Lambda.
To solve a planning or optimization problem, some solvers tend to scale out poorly: As the problem has more variables and more constraints, they use a lot more RAM memory and CPU power. They can hit hardware memory limits at a few thousand variables and few million constraint matches. One way their users typically work around such hardware limits, is to use MapReduce. Let’s see what happens if we...
Archiving of your important data is something a lot of people and companies overlook. Data is probably one of the most vital assets of any company and is the lifeblood that keeps your business moving. Data loss is usually not on the radar until it happens. And, once it does happen, the importance of good backup/archiving becomes brutally apparent. Are you prepared? Find out:...
Open source testing tools carry a certain appeal to testers – there’s no doubt about that. However, there is a pretty intense debate out there between open source testing tool advocates and in-house/vendor testing tool advocates. Both camps provide equally valid points.

You may think of Linux (in its various flavors) as being the primary OS of the Cloud, but you’d be surprised. We’re seeing more and more applications and services being hosted on Windows platforms all the time. Find out how you can easily collect and display data for CPU, Disk, Network, and Memory, from your Windows servers: https://blog.logentries.com/2014/03/new-improved-windows-agent/
I’ve been playing around with Docker this morning as I was initially interested in figuring out what log management looks like for any Docker users out there. From first look, Docker has a “logs” command that will fetch the logs from a container. However, using the Docker “logs” command is a little primitive. A better approach might be to run Rsyslog from your container to forward any logs...
