What is Machine Data?
Machine data is more than just logs. It includes configurations, data from APIs, message queues, change events, the output of diagnostic commands, call detail records and sensor data from industrial systems and more.
All websites, communications, networking and complex IT infrastructures generate massive streams of machine data every second of every day, in an array of unpredictable formats that are difficult to process and analyze by traditional methods or in a timely manner.
What’s Different about Machine Data?
This machine-generated data holds critical information on user behavior, security risks, capacity consumption, service levels, fraudulent activity, customer experience and much more. That’s why it’s the fastest growing, most complex and valuable segment of big data.
The traditional set of monitoring and analysis tools were not designed for the variety, velocity, volume or variability of this data. A new approach, one specifically architected for this unique class of data, is required to quickly diagnose service problems, detect sophisticated security threats, understand the health and performance of remote equipment and demonstrate compliance.
