Logstash vs Stackdriver: What are the differences?

Developers describe Logstash as "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. On the other hand, Stackdriver is detailed as "Monitoring, logging, and diagnostics for applications on Google Cloud Platform and AWS". Google Stackdriver provides powerful monitoring, logging, and diagnostics. It equips you with insight into the health, performance, and availability of cloud-powered applications, enabling you to find and fix issues faster.

Logstash belongs to "Log Management" category of the tech stack, while Stackdriver can be primarily classified under "Cloud Monitoring".

Some of the features offered by Logstash are:

  • Centralize data processing of all types
  • Normalize varying schema and formats
  • Quickly extend to custom log formats

On the other hand, Stackdriver provides the following key features:

  • Monitoring
  • Logging
  • Diagnostics

"Free" is the primary reason why developers consider Logstash over the competitors, whereas "Monitoring" was stated as the key factor in picking Stackdriver.

Logstash is an open source tool with 10.3K GitHub stars and 2.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Logstash's open source repository on GitHub.

Airbnb, reddit, and Typeform are some of the popular companies that use Logstash, whereas Stackdriver is used by Kalibrr, Nuuvem, and Verba. Logstash has a broader approval, being mentioned in 561 company stacks & 278 developers stacks; compared to Stackdriver, which is listed in 58 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.
