Throughout this book, we’ve talked about logging and monitoring and their value in troubleshooting your applications and services. In the first section of this chapter, we’re going to look at how logs work on the Linux operating system and how to make use of that data. We’ll look at how to store, aggregate, analyze, send alerts on, and rotate log entries and logs. We’ll also look at some tools to make it easier to interact with your logs.
