Most organizations feel the need to centralize their PHP logs — once you have more than a couple of servers or containers, SSH and tail will not serve you well any more. However, the common question or struggle is how to achieve that.

This talk presents multiple approaches and patterns with their advantages and disadvantages, so you can pick the one that fits your organization best: parse, send, structure, containerize, or orchestrate.

Each pattern has its own demo with the open source Elastic Stack (previously called ELK Stack), so you can easily try out the different approaches in your environment. Though the general patterns are applicable with any centralized logging system.

Decent look into using Elastic stack for logging.

Good talk, I was more about configuring logging libraries and the magic ELK will do.

Too centric on docker environment. Nice intro to what's elk, what it can solved,... But hoping to get more from it.

Couldn’t really help but think it was a sales pitch for the ELK stack. Even though the tech looks fabulous it was too much of a sales pitch, to me.

Interesting to see more on the ELK stack.
