Logstash – Awesome tool



Logstash is a tool for receiving, processing and outputting logs. All kinds of logs.

System logs, webserver logs, error logs, application logs and just about anything

you can throw at it. Sounds great, eh?

Using Elasticsearch as a backend datastore, and kibana as a frontend reporting tool,

Logstash acts as the workhorse, creating a powerful pipeline for storing, querying and

analyzing your logs. With an arsenal of built-in inputs, filters, codecs and outputs, you

can harness some powerful functionality with a small amount of effort.
