[arch-devops] Centralized log monitoring and alerting?

Hi all,

On 2018-07-28 there were some discussions in #archlinux-devops around setting up
some sort of centralized logging/monitoring/alerting solution for the various
services on Apollo (and maybe other?) server(s). I had mentioned possibly using
the ELK[1] stack for this task. There was some back and forth about it
potentially being a bit heavy handed for what was needed and how we would most
likely need to repurpose/dedicate something like nymeria to handle the stack.
There was also the suggestion of possibly using something like tenshi[2] if
we're aiming for a low overhead solution, however, there would be much writing
of the regexes.

With that being said, the purpose of this email is to have a more formal
discussion around what we're trying to capture from the logs, the actions we
want to have taken with what ends up being captured, and possibly come to a
consensus on what tool(s) we could leverage.
