Papertrail, now owned by Solarwinds, is a log management service which allows you to manage logs from apps, servers, and cloud services with the use of alerts and events.

All you need to get started is an account in Papertrail and an account on Hosted Graphite. Check out the Papertrail documentation for more details on how to create alerts in Papertrail that will create and forward Graphite metrics to your HG account.

When you create an alert in Papertrail, it will use a keyword to track the specified events and occurrences in your logs. A Graphite metric will be created and forwarded to your HG account and you can use these metrics to create custom dashboards and alerts.
