Seq vs Bunyan: What are the differences?
Developers describe Seq as "A log server that runs on a central machine". It is the easiest way to collect, search, analyze and alert on structured log data. Structured logging preserves the individual property values, as well as the text, associated with each event. On the other hand, Bunyan is detailed as "A logging module for node.js services". It is a simple and fast JSON logging module for node.js services. It has extensible streams system for controlling where log records go (to a stream, to a file, log file rotation, etc.).
Seq and Bunyan can be primarily classified as "Logging" tools.
Some of the features offered by Seq are:
- intelligent search
- alerting server
On the other hand, Bunyan provides the following key features:
- Elegant log method API
- Extensible streams system for controlling where log records go (to a stream, to a file, log file rotation, etc.)
- bunyan CLI for pretty-printing and filtering of Bunyan logs
Bunyan is an open source tool with 5.96K GitHub stars and 488 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Bunyan's open source repository on GitHub.
