Logging Solutions

Logs are everywhere: application logs, database logs, server logs, event logs. Managing the volume of logs, and even more important, using the data effectively, can be extremely difficult.

Learn how some local companies are taking on these challenges. Speakers will give short presentations (10-20 minutes) discussing the logging problems they face and the tools they use to solve them.

Tentative speakers: 

Alex Koppel, eSpark: Graylog2

Brian Cosgrove, Braintree: Logstash, Kibana

Chris Brown, Backstop: Splunk

James Boylan, Orbitz: Rsyslog, Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Kibana

Jeff McCombs, Nokia: Syslog-ng, Scribe, Hadoop, Redshift

Kevin Reedy, Belly: Fluentd, HDFS, RabbitMQ, S3

Michael Keane, Dotomi: Flume, HDFS


5:30 - 6:00: Networking (Food & Drink)

6:00 - 8:00: Presentations

NOTE: Please use the building entrance on Washington St. (at Canal) as the building lobby is under renovation and all other entrances are closed.

Please RSVP with your full name for building security.

    Good crowd tonight. Lots of great approaches to logging were explored. I am so jealous of Braintree HQ

    If there is still some room on the agenda, I can do a quick talk on our graphite solutions as well as logstash. Mainly will focus on designing/deploying these systems at the scale of 1500 nodes and ~250k datapoints

      I think we have a full slate. Beyond the speakers listed, I have a couple backups as well (it's been a busy week so I didn't get around to removing the call for speakers). If anything changes, I'll get in touch with you. Hope to see you at the meeting.

      If something opens up - I wouldn't mind giving Gogo's insights on sumologic - another great tool for aggregating/analyzing all those logs
