LogDevice vs Zap: What are the differences?

Developers describe LogDevice as "Log storage for high-durability low-latency streaming use cases (by Facebook)". LogDevice is a scalable and fault tolerant distributed log system. While a file-system stores and serves data organized as files, a log system stores and delivers data organized as logs. The log can be viewed as a record-oriented, append-only, and trimmable file. On the other hand, Zap is detailed as "Blazing fast, structured, leveled logging in Go (by Uber)". Zap takes a different approach. It includes a reflection-free, zero-allocation JSON encoder, and the base Logger strives to avoid serialization overhead and allocations wherever possible. By building the high-level SugaredLogger on that foundation, zap lets users choose when they need to count every allocation and when they'd prefer a more familiar, loosely typed API.

LogDevice and Zap can be categorized as "Logging" tools.

LogDevice and Zap are both open source tools. Zap with 7.22K GitHub stars and 553 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than LogDevice with 1.52K GitHub stars and 136 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to LogDevice and Zap?
    Kafka
    Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.
    Log4j
    It is an open source logging framework. With this tool – logging behavior can be controlled by editing a configuration file only without touching the application binary and can be used to store the Selenium Automation flow logs.
    Loki
    Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate, as it does not index the contents of the logs, but rather a set of labels for each log stream.
    Seq
    Seq is a self-hosted server for structured log search, analysis, and alerting. It can be hosted on Windows or Linux/Docker, and has integrations for most popular structured logging libraries.
    Bunyan
    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.)
