Hi everyone. I'm trying to create my personal syslog monitoring.
To get the logs, I have uncertainty to choose the way: 1.1 Use Logstash like a TCP server. 1.2 Implement a Go TCP server.
To store and plot data. 2.1 Use Elasticsearch tools. 2.2 Use InfluxDB and Grafana.
I would like to know... Which is a cheaper and scalable solution?
Or even if there is a better way to do it.
A very simple and cheap (resource usage) option here would be to use promtail to send syslog data to Loki and visualise Loki with Grafana using the native Grafana Loki data source. I have recently put together this set up and promtail and Loki are less resource intensive than Logstash/ES and it is a simple set up and configuration and works very nicely.
Does promtel available for PCF?
Hi @sunilmchaudhari I do not know. I assume by PCF you are refering to Pivot Cloud Foundry, which I have no knowledge of sorry. Promtail is a go binary so if you can add log data to a syslog, then you can process it with Promtail.
