Deploying Logscape in the cloud has its challenges. Logscape is a cpu and i/o intensive application and finding an optimal configuration between disk, i/o and cost requires extensive benchmarking and tests.
Recently we started looking at Amazon. We have now have three stages to our benchmarking.
In preparation for release Logscape as a SAAS solution, the Collectd App has been updated. The CollectdApp is one of the first apps to support Logcape Cloud.
- write_graphite – This release now uses the graphite plugin to import collectd metrics.
- Workspaces Update – the workspaces have all been updated
- Zip – The app is now available as a zip. Whereas before it was distributed as a config file.
