Overcoming Logging Challenges for Cloud Native Applications at Scale


There are tried and true methods for debugging and monitoring standalone applications; however, applications at scale are a different story. There are huge complexities involved that affects how log management needs to be handled to perform a safe data analysis. Logging becomes challenging in environments with distributed applications and/or microservices as new patterns and specialized tools are required. 

The following presentation will dive into the complexity of log management at scale, the internal phases of a logging pipeline, constraints in containers, and approaches like Log Forwarders and Log Aggregators that can be used to achieve a scalable logging layer in a Kubernetes cluster.

Anyone interested in applications at scale will benefit from this presentation, as it will provide insight into the complexity behind logging, how to achieve log management at scale and have a healthy Kubernetes cluster.
