Logstash vs Serilog: What are the differences?

Logstash: Collect, Parse, & Enrich Data. Logstash is a tool for managing events and logs. You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (like, for searching). If you store them in Elasticsearch, you can view and analyze them with Kibana; Serilog: A portable and structured logging framework to record diagnostic logs. It provides diagnostic logging to files, the console, and elsewhere. It is easy to set up, has a clean API, and is portable between recent .NET platforms.

Logstash and Serilog can be categorized as "Log Management" tools.

Logstash and Serilog are both open source tools. It seems that Logstash with 10.6K GitHub stars and 2.84K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Serilog with 3.05K GitHub stars and 458 GitHub forks.
