Log managing at PIC


As an distributed environment grows in number of components and servers, extracting and analyzing relevant information from system and application logs becomes a more complex task.

In the presentation we show our approach to an indexed centralized storage, composed of three components:

  • Logstash, as a log collector, parser, converter and forwarder
  • Elasticsearch, as searching and storing engine and
  • Kibana, as visualization interface

The chosen implementation has a good performance in terms of search- ing, is distributed in storage and search computation terms and, as most subsystems can be replicated, is scalable and provides high availability.
