Application logging and log retrieval can suck. You ramp up your logging settings to TRACE trying to catch that critical bug. The next day you check your logs but, being too verbose, they rolled over themselves losing critical context. In this talk, Joe Lawson shows you the best ways to use Logstash, Kafka, and Elasticsearch together. He’ll talk about building a pipeline that can reduce outages and recovery time that works in the cloud or a data center.

Joe is the original author of the logstash-kafka plugin. Along with being an AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional Level, he is currently a Search Engineer at OpenSource Connections and is eager to help you adopt and develop best practices in logging.
