Following on from my last post about using Seq.Input.MSSQL to read Endpoint Protection table entries as Seq logs, I wanted to share something that has really made a huge difference for us - turning the SQL Agent job tables into Seq logs! This was actually the first full MSSQL Input...
I've previously said that I really like Handlebars implementations in other Seq apps, and I felt that there were opportunities to incorporate these into apps like Event Timeout. One of the things to be cautious of here, though, is that we might already be passing a Handlebars template as part...
Lurgle.Dates, EventX Trilogy, Seq Reporter, and Seq.App.Atlassian.Jira updated - Improved date expressions and line breaks
A quick post on app updates - both my own and others. Over the past week, I realised that when adding Jira date expression parsing to the codebase for the Jira app, I missed out on parsing "w" (weeks), which then was also missed in Lurgle.Dates and by extension the...
One of the really useful things with Seq.App.Opsgenie was that Nick Blumhardt had integrated Handlebars templates to the app, using Handlebars.NET. I liked it so much that, when I contributed to Ali Özgür's excellent Seq.App.Atlassian.Jira project, I carried it over. There's a few oddities in the JIRA REST API, and...
You would realise by now that I'm quite a fan of Seq. It's hard not to be, when you can download a free single user license and get started with a trial, a POC, or designing your monitoring and infrastructure. The growth in open source apps for Seq over the...
Updates to Event Timeout, Event Threshold, and Event Schedule for Seq ... and introducing Lurgle.Dates!
Grr ... Bugses. We hates them precious. There's nothing worse than code that doesn't quite work as intended. Well, that's not quite true. If you have 3 products with common code that doesn't work as intended, that's probably worse. Anyway, I noticed that Event Schedule fired prematurely on the last...
After the last update to Seq.Client.WindowsLogins, in which I cursed the very existence of EventLog().EntryWritten, the Seq Client for Windows Logins has proven to be extremely reliable, and we've been really happy with it. It does exactly what it's supposed to do - it logs events to Seq when an...
EventX Trilogy With the work that I've done on my Seq apps (specifically Event Timeout and Event Threshold), I've managed to build quite a robust and versatile date and time system which can be set for some complex scenarios. The properties built into these apps are extensive, with an ability...
"Tell us when events fall below a threshold, between X and Y times..." Seq has an innate ability to alert based on a simple count of events in a signal, using dashboard widgets with alerts. We use that for a number of alerts, including detection of possible upstream outages -...
Building up the Seq app for OpsGenie Over the past few weeks, I've worked with Nicholas Blumhardt to enhance the Seq.App.OpsGenie application for Seq. Nicholas is the founder and CEO of Datalust, the company behind Seq, and is very active in the community - which is awesome, and has meant that...
When we investigated OpsGenie, one feature I was attracted to was Heartbeat Monitoring. This is a feature that can help to answer a fundamental problem - "How do you know if you have a major site or infrastructure outage?" There are plenty of ways that you could go about this,...
"Something hasn't happened!" My workplace has quite a number of disparate applications and scripts that drive critical SLAs. Historically, these were managed by exception and emailing errors to various mailboxes. This is a fairly poor approach to managing SLAs, since it is reliant on a human factor - someone has...
