AWS CloudTrail vs Logback: What are the differences?
Developers describe AWS CloudTrail as "Record AWS API calls for your account and have log files delivered to you". With CloudTrail, you can get a history of AWS API calls for your account, including API calls made via the AWS Management Console, AWS SDKs, command line tools, and higher-level AWS services (such as AWS CloudFormation). The AWS API call history produced by CloudTrail enables security analysis, resource change tracking, and compliance auditing. The recorded information includes the identity of the API caller, the time of the API call, the source IP address of the API caller, the request parameters, and the response elements returned by the AWS service. On the other hand, Logback is detailed as "A logging framework for Java applications". It is intended as a successor to the popular log4j project. It is divided into three modules, logback-core, logback-classic and logback-access. The logback-core module lays the groundwork for the other two modules, logback-classic natively implements the SLF4J API so that you can readily switch back and forth between logback and other logging frameworks and logback-access module integrates with Servlet containers, such as Tomcat and Jetty, to provide HTTP-access log functionality.
AWS CloudTrail and Logback belong to "Log Management" category of the tech stack.
Netflix, Slack, and Seat Pagine Gialle are some of the popular companies that use AWS CloudTrail, whereas Logback is used by Montoux, movix, and immmr. AWS CloudTrail has a broader approval, being mentioned in 50 company stacks & 59 developers stacks; compared to Logback, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.
