  15. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Survey Question:

    How are you managing Logstash instances? 15
  16. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Most users

    manage manually 16
  17. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash API driven

    changes 17 Dynamic changes, no need to restart instances
  18. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Clustered Logstash

    18 Payments Server Database Web Server
  19. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Clustering Implementation

    19 Payments Server Database Web Server elasticsearch
  20. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Clustering benefits

    • Ease of control and management • Provides groundwork for future changes • “Tags” to mark instances — which means you could run multiple pipelines • High availability and load balancing 20
  21. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Survey Question:

    What metrics would you like to see exposed 21
  22. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Metrics 22

  23. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Operational Visibility

    • “Why is grok being slow?” • “How many events are coming in over syslog?” • “What is the latency of events through Logstash?” 23
  24. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Recap: Manageability

    • API Driven • No restarts for config changes • Support both single instance and clustered instance • Pluggable interface for storing state (Elasticsearch) • More metrics from Logstash 24
  25. Logstash Forwarder Future Experiments

  26. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash 26

  27. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash The Idea:

    Unify Codebase Hopes: Easier to maintain + fewer bugs Better community engagement Fewer moving parts 27 Fears: Possible performance loss Difficulty in packaging Larger resource usage What if logstash-forwarder was just logstash?
  28. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash The Experiment:

    Logstash under MRI 1. Make Logstash’s tests pass under MRI 2.2 2. Observe: file input to lumberjack output 3. Create a single package with no dependencies 28
  29. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash Side effects:

    Logstash under MRI 1. Fast start time 2. Improved first-time experience 3. More deployment options (MRI, JRuby) 29
  30. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash 30 FYI:

    Logstash is still best in JRuby.
  31. { } CC-BY-ND 4.0 What’s new in Logstash worst case:

    logstash-forwarder stays in Go and we invest in more heavily in it. 31
