GALLOWAY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Linode, an established leader in cloud hosting, today announced Longview, its new Linux server statistics graphing service for performance analysis, which provides systems administrators with the metrics and analytics they need to avoid crippling logjams and downtime. Longview’s up-to-the-minute data, metrics and analytics serve to maximize server system performance and better manage system resources. Administrators can also go back in time by months, or even years to better analyze system performance and make better planning decisions for future high traffic events.
From six data centers in the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific, Linode currently provides hosting tools and services for 150,000 customers worldwide, who range from individuals to companies big and small, all the way to enterprise level. Now, with Longview, customers can visualize data through interactive graphs across an entire fleet of servers on a single dashboard. Longview provides the historical data, metrics and analytics which system administrators need to improve server performance, streamline costs, reduce system risk and easily scale resources to adjust for events which may otherwise strain resources and affect system performance.
Longview allows administrators to:
- Analyze system performance in an easy-to-use, graphically displayed dashboard.
- Evaluate up-to-the-minute information concerning CPU, memory, network, and processes.
- Record all systems activity allowing them to go back in time and investigate a problem or understand how a change impacted their infrastructure.
- Better prepare their budget by determining future resource needs from historical data, allowing businesses to scale resources as needed.
- Reduce risk by testing new code and system configurations to understand their performance implications.
- Evaluate the load distribution across backend databases and web servers.
- Gauge changes in server traffic from ad campaigns and news releases to prepare fully for high traffic events in the future.
“Since using Longview, our systems have operated with amazing efficiency and experienced no downtime,” said Michael Girouard, Lead Developer of Push, an interactive marketing and branding consulting firm. “Its graphs are visually stunning and make it relatively easy to glean insight from comprehensive and oftentimes complex data. In a word, Longview rocks.”
“Linode is constantly innovating and enhancing our technology to match the needs of our customers and the developer community with whom we work so closely,” said Linode Founder and CEO Christopher Aker. “With Longview, we are expanding the insights that systems administrators have at the systems level for data centers and individual servers, giving them the statistics they need to make informed decisions and plan accordingly for future events with an easy-to-use, beautiful dashboard.”
Longview is free in its basic version and is offered in a more powerful, yet affordable enhanced version called Longview Pro. Both versions are available now.
