Qingwei Lin, Hongyu Zhang, Jian-Guang Lou, Yu Zhang, Xuewei Chen
2016 Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering Companion - ICSE '16  
When an online service fails, engineers need to examine recorded logs to gain insights into the failure and identify the potential problems.  ...  Engineers only need to examine a small number of previously unseen, representative log sequences extracted from the clusters to identify a problem, thus significantly reducing the number of logs that should  ...  We thank our product team partners for their collaboration and suggestions on the applications of LogCluster.  ...

Analysis of execution log files

Meiyappan Nagappan
2010 Proceedings of the 32nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE '10  
The goal of my dissertation research is to investigate log management and analysis techniques suited for very large and very complex logs, such as those we might expect in a computational cloud system.  ...  Log analysis can be used to find problems, define operational profiles, and even pro-actively prevent issues.  ...  They are i) high level users of a system who generally do not look into a log file, ii) system administrators who look into the log file to find a workaround for the failure that the high level users have  ...

Digging deeper into cluster system logs for failure prediction and root cause diagnosis

Xiaoyu Fu, Rui Ren, Sally A. McKee, Jianfeng Zhan, Ninghui Sun
2014 2014 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing (CLUSTER)  
System logs play a critical role in the increasingly complex tasks of automatic failure prediction and diagnosis.  ...  Finally, we extract failure rules based on the observation that events of the same event types, on the same nodes or from the same applications have similar operational behaviors.  ...  Checking the log trace reveals that this FGP is also shared by other nodes in this cluster. The system log messages comprise streams of interleaved events that may have resulted from many FGPs.  ...

Insight: In-situ Online Service Failure Path Inference in Production Computing Infrastructures

Hiep Nguyen, Daniel Joseph Dean, Kamal Kc, Xiaohui Gu
2014 USENIX Annual Technical Conference  
Insight leverages both environment data (e.g., input logs, configuration files, states of interacting components) and runtime outputs (e.g., console logs, system calls) to guide the failure path finding  ...  We have implemented Insight and evaluated it using 13 failures from a production cloud management system and 8 open source software systems.  ...  We also thank VCL system administrators Aaron Peeler and Andy Kurth for providing us with the log data and their generous help on validation. We thank Anwesha Das for helping with the experiments.  ...

Priolog: Mining Important Logs via Temporal Analysis and Prioritization

Byungchul Tak, Seorin Park, Prabhakar Kudva
2019 Sustainability  
However, the growing software complexity and volume of logs make it increasingly challenging to mine useful insights from logs for problem diagnosis.  ...  In this paper, we propose a novel technique, Priolog, that can narrow down the volume of logs into a small set of important and most relevant logs.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

SemParser: A Semantic Parser for Log Analysis [article]

Yintong Huo, Yuxin Su, Baitong Li, Michael R. Lyu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We believe these findings provide insights into semantically understanding log messages for the log analysis community.  ...  To analyze the effectiveness of our semantic parser, we first demonstrate that it can derive rich semantics from log messages collected from seven widely-applied systems with an average F1 score of 0.987  ...  While anomaly detection identies present faults from logs, failure diagnosis looks deeper into the problems and specify why the failure appears.  ...
