Filebeat vs Logback: What are the differences?
Filebeat: A lightweight shipper for forwarding and centralizing log data. It helps you keep the simple things simple by offering a lightweight way to forward and centralize logs and files; Logback: 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.
