Logstash vs Sysdig: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Sysdig? Open source container monitoring for all Linux container technologies, including Docker, LXC, etc. Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter and analyze Sysdig is scriptable in Lua and includes a command line interface and a powerful interactive UI, csysdig, that runs in your terminal. Think of sysdig as strace + tcpdump + htop + iftop + lsof + awesome sauce. With state of the art container visibility on top..

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

    Prometheus

    We have Prometheus as a monitoring engine as a part of our stack which contains Kubernetes cluster, container images and other open source tools. Also, I am aware that Sysdig can be integrated with Prometheus but I really wanted to know whether Sysdig or sysdig+prometheus will make better monitoring solution.
