Abstract Peter Hoffmann - log everything with logstash and elasticsearch When your application grows beyond one machine you need a central space to log, monitor and analyze what is going on. Logstash and elasticsearch let you store your logs in a structured way. Kibana is a web fronted to search and aggregate your logs. ----- The talk will give an overview on how to add centralized, structured logging to a python application running on multiple servers. It will focus on useful patterns and show the benefits from structured logging.

hello welcome to my talk lot everything is looks this and ElasticSearch come to begin with just the resistance to users logging in your applications yes that's great to use the central and that's OK and I will be somewhat after this talk a little bit about me and we can follow me on Twitter and can get the slides and contempt of
post them after words and of course you can visit my blog and it and most of them come from my myself that developed only under forms of this event and we and others as a leading software as a service provider for predictive analytics in the European market and headquarters and cost and offices in humble in London and about 120 employees we use the full python think for development and use last fall the front and if the phylogeny for database success and the time maximum like once they from machine learning to most of the local algorithms are written in C + + and executed on a custom parallel execution and execution engine engine and of course the are hiring so that
everything when your applications rose be on 1 machine in sample space from morning to and analyze that's going on extension Search locks in a
structured way and combined either great vector from the front end to search and aggregated logs and just a little bit a disclaimer I'll talk a lot about a lot station but I think the same happens for gridlock we love is also a great tool to collect a lot and I think they have a similar strings and some differences so what do you
need if you want to have a central lobbying for your applications of course the whole lot produces can be a front and might even be a JavaScript single-page application which uses a custom API to shift the loss of the bank and might be some API and service might be no agentification services might be in database system all the operations system you have to and transport fuel also to central station and I think everybody knows locked I told a little bit about yeah that's the greater extended loving format but it can also shift the locks the greatest used all the other rabbit Q system good evening look to log files and pass them back this the work on regular expressions but I think that get more benefits if you log messages in a structured way then you have to rule to infinity a lot so you can do this with looks that was very to sell and of course you need some storage American soil log I think the last search is 1 of the great open source tools it not only allows you to search logs but do all kinds of based on your blog 5 and to do that analysis you need a lot front end to access to access logs when I had to have a little bit about combine and it's just only a framework and the greater to solve has wondered about interfaces but it could also use the plane and elastic Search had it's a JavaScript application to 0 even use tightening was a pious library and the constant a against a log files so what I'm going to talk today as the loving chain to
transport you logs was skills to looks as tho looks this them into an elastic search search engine and you can access the logs the combined framework it's depend on transport would store and analyze if you need to go further and you can but you can scale each part of the system and you can add more nodes and you can use unwatchable looks as instances or even at message broker in front of the log search so that the message proper collects the logs and then shifts simple extension to handle of the load better what is scaled
goes the real and looking for it's basically adjacent over UDP and that means it's non-blocking but i'm and avoid some shortcomings that you have places law was which is all also takes over UTP and it's not limited to 1 kilobyte by analysis l'identique can more but the plane as looking just have 1 kilobyte in often 1 kilobyte is not enough especially when you application monitoring and logging because of spectra and you just have more data but it also extracted from the logs so you have a key value a relation of and Jason and it as compression building and the possibility to add something 10 0 log message can be trying to I think about 100 and strontium messages all sources locked up in the fold has no support additional fields and it's not a sum in Guelph you can at arbitrary fields and returned at about 10 to the log messages so I think Guelph and is a great choice abuse applications and of course there is the great
pipe-like had and clients for all kinds of messages to 1 thing you have to consider many 1 2 to lock was by a because it's standby UDP it's not reliable if your network is flaky if the cell was is under high load messages could get lost so if you will really want to get a sure that you will look message arrives at the so what you have to consider and different transport formats like I said earlier on really is all the evidence she was system so
what does that mean look messaging goes look like an you have a mandatory merge fields if the host field the look message comes from nearly short message you haven't times then you have the local level and then you will have an arbitrary number of customers feels like a facility or some request out of the board this later so how do the
despise it's pretty straightforward works was
defined as it is not logging and you just had girlfriend law holds and fault time to get just look at the moment and then like the push it into you know I guess so this and in our case workstation so what
is lox Spanish blocks there is a tool for receiving processing and of putting locks it's with the written in j will in and runs in the job little machine it's based on the peptides and the depend so the of the incoming pipes you transform the messages filter the messages you may even at fields all the need fields and if you do have a lot of power applied we all put into ElasticSearch and Jonas inselberg creator of all flux there's a small employed by Elastic Search and and the combined event from that and uses to which it is also and that it would after and 6 such company so our
do you run like that of course you just download it's and packets and she needs some simple configuration as a allele you have to define inputs filters and outputs the field is optional and you're just drop all messages with the local the back the fault system we define a gals import input fields but you look search can also provide input types likes his local reduce or on other tools such only the output of this elastic search result for word you can also look to file but it's of course and you can only benefit if a lot if you put your structure looks into lockstep but the what's the
dynamic keep ionizes single-page JavaScript application you need just unsuited to come in you
and antiques will fall fold up and it's a tool to search analyzed time-based data on inelastic search and has a rich set of civilization and on provides the access to the full of full search syntax from elastic search and you can create and share and what for yourself or within a company a big advantage in using the banner that is it is possible for non-programmers or not so skilled people to tree and analyze logs and I think the really important point is you don't have to have access to some us and to analyze it looks but you have to consider the cubana has no authentication building so it directly talks to an elastic search search this and who can read from elastic search can also write to ElasticSearch so if you need extra security and you have to put a proxy in between and handle was somewhat education the next slides
from also possibilities to visualize and search queries from elastic search music band better match and users due graphic coordinates has actually create classes on a map you consume in you can do this based on country codes and a lot messages yes if you want to go and you can click on the class course and have that if you wanted and the
candle candles with histograms histograms and displayed time jobs and displays condos meaning and not singing in the total number of merge fields you can build spotty
irons fatherlands are great tool to get an overview of this system what's going on based on tiny sometimes also and you don't get the exact numbers but if you look at this plot line was normally you can really fast accessible is going on and if there's something wrong with the system then
the band of prior to provide some musicalization for the the 1st that could calculation from lot from Elastic Search and physical alkylation means and based on a set of filters you can see 1 term is distributed you you can see I think that there are lots of from 1 of its own world what kind of fires you I deliver what mostly had HTML some PHP and as some images so it's also nice to get a quick overview all fuel but this is something I after talking
a little bit more about the technology like to present some some of looking patterns that are useful when you want to add structure belonging to your application but they all based on on and adding context you will log messages so the easiest way to contextual look methods is just use the extra field from your block on message and it just takes a date where again at arbitrary key value pairs and there a lot again just pushes them into an extension a little bit more
advanced imaging using the future all so the filter you can context to all of you looking after so if we don't have a publication was a you log in you can add a filter which gets the locked in username to all the loneliness is just after words
the request ID and later all looked message from rest together so
if you generate a request idea at the beginning of the web request and just add them and the content with the context for all the following log messages it's easier to identify the messages from the same request and it makes debugging much more easier how
does it work OK you get a request impressive application is that the the crest of ID and all the learning messages have regrets that he applied
how could you implement this that's some example for the last class before right so before request handler and that's always called when a new request starts generating UID and you're adding a filter
onto the logging so that every log message as this we present the idea applied and the
correlation i the political a lot messages from different applications and systems in the front and so on something and a piece of research you want to call later lot message so 1st of all all syllables so what do you do at the beginning of the request on the front and so you generate a correlation idea and then you make requests to the back and so you at the correlation idea to all of you requests and the bank and so I was just read to you from the explanation ID had a field and at these correlation idea to the log messages same
idea all the log messages have the same correlation idea and you can follow up on the web address across different applications
implementation for flask pretty straightforward to just get the header field if it said and of again you can get a the am I
started the talk of this the claim log everything that's not always tool if you have a really big systems and maybe you don't want to look at every the debug message and uh there's a really cool hand it's not yet valuable in the title looking but it's available in the local from mean 1 of and what is the address 10 lines from the handler about another hand and bottles all the log messages untill on the tree going on at the next level is triggered that means you can buy for all the debug messages and if there's after a an error message then it outputs all that about messages if there's no error messages they are done so In the error case you all have ordered by processes in your system and everything if everything works OK you just have the other and the way the implementation pretty T
I think but and I really like a lot of books and I think it's of the ultimate to this and other logging but you have always to it made and the benefits of using using an explore library to the benefits of using this then that was important so that's my talk and finished 1 minute left thank you very much and
