Understanding what is happening with a solution that is built from multiple components can be challenging. While the solution space for monitoring and application log management is mature, there is a tendency for organizations to end up with multiple tools which overlap in this space to meet different team needs. They also work on aggregate then act, rather than consider things in a more granular way.
FluentD presents us with a means to simplify the monitoring landscape, address challenges of hyper-distribution occurring with microservice solutions, allowing different tools needing log data to help in their different way.
In this session, we’ll explore the challenges of modern log management. How its use can make hybrid and multi-cloud solutions easy to monitor.
