Scaling your logging infrastructure with syslog-ng
From raw data to Big Data
Peter is a system engineer working as community manager at BalaBit, the company behind the syslog-ng logging daemon. He helps distributions to maintain the syslog-ng package, follows bug trackers, helps syslog-ng users, and talks regularly at conferences (SCALE, FOSDEM, Libre Software Meeting, LOADays, etc.). In his limited free time he is interested in non-x86 architectures, and works on one of his PPC or ARM machines.
No video of the event yet, sorry! Meanwhile...
The syslog-ng application is an enhanced logging daemon, with a focus on central log collection. It collects logs from many different sources, processes and filters them and finally it stores them or routes them for further analysis.
This session focuses on how syslog-ng parses important information from incoming messages, and how it routes logs, feeding downstream systems using arbitrary formats. We will also discuss how the client – relay – server architecture can solve scalability problems. Also, I will present some of the recently introduced “Big Data” destinations of syslog-ng, which can help to scale your infrastructure even further.
