Cut Down Your Log Analysis Work with Graylog OSS

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015
6:30 - 8:30 PM

Presented by

Lennart Koopmann and Matt Maloney

Graylog is a fully integrated, Java-based, open source platform for collecting, indexing, and analyzing both structured and unstructured data from almost any source. We'll start out with a brief overview of Graylog and discuss its architecture, which includes components such as MongoDB and Elasticsearch. Key use cases for developers and a developer case study of how a development team went from 0 to 100% centralized app logs in 2 weeks will also be discussed.

How to make the most out of Graylog will also be covered, including how to use GELF, the Graylog Extended Log Format, a drop in log formatter that will work with log messages that are longer than 1024 bytes, and how to stream logs from your Java application directly into Graylog. Other adapters are available but won't be covered in this presentation.

Lennart Koopmann (CTO and Graylog co-founder) started Graylog in 2009 with the goal of making easy and affordable for application developers and system admins to analyze machine data, for better application and infrastructure problem discovery and resolution. Before Graylog, Lennart was a software architect at Xing, a social software platform for enabling a small-world network for professionals and several companies.

Matt Maloney (VP Product Management) Matt leads product strategy at Graylog and is passionate about open source products. Recently Matt came from Zenoss, where he led product strategy for their commercial open source unified monitoring platform.
