I’m currently looking at some centralised logging tools and the following stand out:
- Octopussy – one I cam across a long time ago but looking at some of the others below it may be past its sell by date?
- Graylog2 – GSOH (in dating parlance) – “Manage your logs in the dark and have lasers going and make it look like you’re from space.“
- logstash – “a tool for managing events and logs. You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (like, for searching). Speaking of searching, logstash comes with a web interface for searching and drilling into all of your logs.“
- Kibana – You have logs. Billions of lines of data. You shipped, dated it, parsed it and stored it. Now what do you do with it? Now you make sense of it… Kibana is an alternative browser based interface for Logstash… that allows you to efficiently search, graph, analyze and otherwise make sense of a mountain of logs.
Kibana has a Bootstrap UI and is written in PHP which immediately bumps it up my list 😉
