The road to centralized logging
Are you deploying applications / containers / microservices to a set of servers in the cloud or on-premise? If you want to know what actually is going on after you deploy then this talk is for you.
Centralized logging is the practice of collecting logs from everywhere in your system and then making them visible from one central place. This lets you monitor, debug, and even accidentally spot issues in your system as they happen - or investigate them properly after.
In this talk we will discuss log ingestion at scale, and various logging and log-viewing techniques and tools you can use for making sense of them. We will see how Grafana, the ELK stack, Prometheus and other such tools can then be used reliably and relatively easily to create a robust (and not too costly) logging architecture.
