I am also considering Logstash.

I want to add a remote debugging tool for my application, and my application is currently live in 10 countries. So, the scale is quite big. Can you help me choose the best client-side debugging tool? Also, are there any tools available in the market that provide 3rd party server integration too?

Bugfender

Bugfender is mainly focused on getting the application logs, which is very useful for debugging and reproducing errors reported by users. Also has a "user feedback" option, that lets you get feedback from your users and get the application logs alongside it. Bugsnag and Crashlytics are more focused on "error analytics", mostly crashes, and they're more advanced in terms of analytics and detection of trends in crashes. I hope I helped! Disclaimer: I'm one of the founders of Bugfender.

Bugsnag

Bugsnag is one of my favorite tools. I must admit that I can't compare with the other two variants, because I only have experience with Sentry and Bugsnag. Both are fine, but I lean towards Bugsnag. With the help of Bugsnag I'm able to see quite clearly what went wrong, and it shows the affected users (and in my case even the tenant as we're operating a multi-tenant application).

Regarding Logstash: I've been using Bugsnag as a complementary tool with Logging + APM platforms like NewRelic or Datadog. What I mean is, go for Logstash if that's the log monitoring tool you like, but Bugsnag and Logstash are not interchangeable, and it perfectly makes sense to use both.

Hi everyone. I'm trying to create my personal syslog monitoring.

  1. To get the logs, I have uncertainty to choose the way: 1.1 Use Logstash like a TCP server. 1.2 Implement a Go TCP server.

  2. To store and plot data. 2.1 Use Elasticsearch tools. 2.2 Use InfluxDB and Grafana.

I would like to know... Which is a cheaper and scalable solution?

Or even if there is a better way to do it.

Loki
Grafana

Hi Juan

A very simple and cheap (resource usage) option here would be to use promtail to send syslog data to Loki and visualise Loki with Grafana using the native Grafana Loki data source. I have recently put together this set up and promtail and Loki are less resource intensive than Logstash/ES and it is a simple set up and configuration and works very nicely.

Hi @sunilmchaudhari I do not know. I assume by PCF you are refering to Pivot Cloud Foundry, which I have no knowledge of sorry. Promtail is a go binary so if you can add log data to a syslog, then you can process it with Promtail.

Take a look at Prometheus or m3 as a storage engine.
