Log everything with logstash and elasticsearch

EuroPython talk by: Peter Hoffmann@peterhoffmann

A talk by Peter Hoffmann from Blue Yonder which is one of the sponsors of the conference.


Another very good talk by an experienced speaker. However the name  is kind of misleading. Yes – logstash and elasticsearch were mentioned however to main concept of the talk was really logging chain and centralized logging while logstash and elasticsearch are two tools along this chain and there are some alternatives in every step of this chain.

This talk gave me a lot to think about the logging on the company aspect and how should they run, monitor, etc. Also there is some tension to solve \ define about what is logged and what error message \ outputs an app should provide (“logging best practices”).

The video is already available in the EuroPython site and I hope that the slides would be available too soon.
