Logging is becoming a core functionality of an IT organization. Beyond the traditional role for auditing and compliance, it can greatly improve a group’s ability to respond quickly to incidents or support requests. While there are many commercial tools available, they often come with a high price tag. We looked at what could be assembled with open source software; combining several projects, RSyslog, Redis, ElasticSearch, LogStash, and Kibana, to provide a central logging solution with a modern user interface. The result is a system that can handle a large volume of log data and can be adapted to support a variety of tasks.
