Release 1.19: More efficient DevOps with web log parsing and unit testing

Network monitoring is complex, which is why we’re developing a monitoring tool that will drastically increase DevOps productivity. This release is all about improving Netdata’s day-in, day-out performance. We’re working hard to make deploy enhancements that help engineers make faster, smarter decisions about their systems.

v1.19 of Netdata delivers a vastly improved way to collect, parse, and understand the health and performance of any service or application that runs through an Apache or Nginx web server.

And, perhaps more importantly, this improvement lands us one step closer to a generic application log parser for Netdata.

Web log parsing comes on top of 19 bug fixes, 17 improvements, and 18 documentation updates. Let’s jump in.
