Manage VNFs at the Edge with
CruzLog Analytics and Dynamic Visualization

CruzLog is a set of integrated, and flexible tools for IT administrators and operators to collect, filter, analyze, visualize, and manage network, server and application logs for issue tracking, auditing, and compliance.

CruzLog adds comprehensive log collection, analytics, data management, and detailed visualization to Cruz Operations Center's (CruzOC) expansive suite of IT resource management features. Together, they provide a single console management product for managing datacenter and network operations of today's converging infrastructures. A consolidated presentation allows easy access to CruzLog analytics, such as definable filters and single-click context refinements. It also presents select automations, such as device log configuration, data retention, and log event notification.

Fully integrated with CruzOC, infrastructure management for IT and network resources, results in comprehensive and automated problem resolution from a single pane-of-glass.
