GrayLog for Java developers
For developers, application logs are critical to figuring out what’s going on inside the apps we create.In this talk I will show Graylog as an open source log management tool, providing central storage, processing, and analysis of log messages powered by Java,MongoDB and ElasticSearch.
These could be the talking points:
The Graylog log server is based on Java and offers a means for combining several server nodes in a cluster for high availability and scalability. Graylog uses Elasticsearch as database for the log messages as well as MongoDB for application data.
2.Searching and analyzing: Graylog Web Interface
Graylog also has a web interface for searching and viewing Graylog messages. Filters can be applied and saved into logical “streams”, allowing you to look at a slice of your data.
3.Use case:Configure graylog in java projects with maven
As a standard for log events, Graylog promotes usage of the Graylog Extended Log Format (GELF). I will show a use case configuring graylog inside Java project with the GELF appender.
4.Integrating GrayLog with LogStash
In order to create a full log solution it is suitable to combine Graylog with Logstash with a little modification of Logstash and a custom Graylog Plugin.
