Re: CF integration with logger and monitoring tools

Thanks James for your reply.

So you are recommending firehose nozzles for sending logs and metrics to
3rd party application monitoring and logging tools.
For product like Wily Introscope (now known as APM), which is agent based
monitoring approach, and I think these agents right now only support
Java/.Net technologies, which sends such metrics to Wily-Enterprise
Manager. I have found that cf has released Java-buildpack for this
Introscope agent (
https://github.com/cloudfoundry/java-buildpack/blob/master/lib/java_buildpack/framework/introscope_agent.rb
).
So how would the communication would work with such Introscope agent? Will
it still need nozzle? like - introscope agent (assuming Java application)
will send Metrics/Logs to cf metron-agent which in-turn send it to cf
doppler, then have firehose-nozzle to consume logs/metrics from doppler and
send it to Enterprise Manager? Is this the flow or have to follow someother
approach for such agent based monitoring tool?

cf is moving toward the loggregator firehose nozzle approach for sending
stuff in cf to other systems.

most logging products and services support syslog. here is a syslog nozzle
for the firehose that should work well with splunk and similar:
https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/firehose-to-syslog

if you're sending metrics, then you can look at something like the datadog
nozzle for integration with whatever metrics service you are using:
https://github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator/datadog-firehose-nozzle

the current system that is being replaced is called the collector [1],
which has plugins for various providers.

i hope that the CF ecosystem will start having nozzles for many different
metrics providers over time similar to the collector.
