As the number of servers, both bare metal as well as virtual machines, keeps increasing we need some tools that are not only able to store efficiently the logs but can also give us some insightful information from them. Logstash, in combination with the indexing capabilities of Elasticsearch, can be used to collect the logs from different kind of sources and aggregate them in such a way that the resulting information could be useful to spot a problem or find a trend in a huge amount of data.


The purpose of this talk is to present a testbed setup for collecting and analysing the logs produced in a server farm.
