Red Hat has announced the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Version 8.1 is the first minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. The release enhances the manageability, security, and performance of the operating system.
It also adds System Roles, which streamlines the process of setting up subsystems for handling specific functions like storage, networking, time synchronization, kdump, and SElinux. Other features include live kernel patching and container-centric SELinux profiles.
In addition, all supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions now include Red Hat Insights, which helps teams discover configuration and system issues before they impact production.
Logz.io releases Log Patterns
Log management company Logz.io has announced the release of Log Patterns, which uses AI to analyze millions of log messages in real-time. It is able to identify recurring patterns in those logs, saving engineers time with troubleshooting and root cause analysis.
This feature is Logz.io’s third AIOps capability, along with Cognitive Insights and Application Insights. Together, these three features will provide IT operations with a complete AIOps toolset for monitoring and troubleshooting.
“With the explosion of machine data volume and velocity, gaining visibility into the performance of distributed cloud applications is a huge challenge for engineers. Oftentimes, the data produced consists of logs that are verbose, repetitive and unimportant for investigative work, making it difficult to identify and resolve issues efficiently,” says Logz.io CEO, Tomer Levy. “Log Patterns is a powerful tool to cut through noise and reduce complex log data, making it easy for engineers to gain the right insights and effectively identify issues in their systems.”
