We’ve all been there, something goes wrong in our application and we start the tedious task of ‘grep'ing through thousands of lines of logs to find out what’s going on. Once you have a couple of servers or containers this becomes an almost impossible task and the classic SSH and tail won’t serve you well anymore. In this talk Philipp Krenn, developer at Elastic, talked about some logging patterns using the Elastic Stack.
You don't have to go all out and turn your whole infrastructure on it's head just to have a nice logging pattern. Pick the structure that works best for your organisation and work towards better solutions when it's fit to do so. This talk just gave you some nice examples and hopefully some inspiration to have a professional logging infrastructure in your company.
