Alternative to SplunkPosted: May 26, 2014
After having a few issues, I thought it should be time to get a central logging system in place. So Google to the rescue once more. I have come across a few and I will keep adding them to the following list.
This is more an aide de memoire so that I can pick this up when I get more time.
Graylog2 – this looks a good option http://graylog2.org/
Fluentd – the combination of a few bits will give you what you want, the looks to be a good http://docs.fluentd.org/articles/free-alternative-to-splunk-by-fluentd
OpenTSDB – not sure about this one, looks interesting though http://opentsdb.net
Logstash – Again looks interesting http://logstash.net
Any way I will let you know more as I install them
