Mortar has joined Datadog, the leading SaaS-based monitoring service for cloud applications. Read more about what this means here.


    Papertrail is cloud-hosted log management that offers storage, search, and alerting for log files. It works with a wide variety of servers and apps, including Unix, MySQL and Rails.

    Papertrail supports archiving logs to Amazon S3, which is the perfect place to be read by Mortar’s PapertrailLoader and analyzed using Pig on Hadoop. It’s easy to load an entire log history from S3, run an analysis in Hadoop, and then save the results back to S3 (or any other data destination).
