Logging infrastructures have traditionally been centered around building human readable logging, but as systems have grown, the volume of log data is impractical for a human to consume.

In this session we explore how to:

  • Transporting logs across multiple datacenters.
  • Structured Logging: The emerging trend to use JSON or other structures to treat log messages as computer consumable first.
  • Use of open source tools like Graylog2 to analyze log streams.
  • Use of Event Stream Processing tools like ESPER to analyze log streams.
  • Triggering automated actions based on logging.
