Sematext Events User Guide
Sematext lets you visualize performance, metrics, logs, and events. In Sematext, events are often used to represent what's happening with a server or cluster, with an application, a Docker container, and much more.
What are events? Why do you need them and how do you use them?
Think about when something happens in your infrastructure, such as:
- An application starts/stops
- or server restarts,
- CI/CD builds finish running,
- deployments succeed,
- alerts send out notifications, etc.
These are all events. See event examples for more.
You can correlate events with metrics, logs, user experience or synthetic monitoring data using split screen. This type of correlation enables you to see how certain events, such as deployments, affected performance or to see whether a performance or error spike co-occured with an event such as application restart, or any other change in the application or infrastructure. You can view events, logs, and metrics on the same timeline, saving you huge amounts of time when debugging. See correlation for metrics and correlation for logs.
