As applications, hosting environments and infrastructure continue to grow in size and complexity, having a well defined set of logging strategies and practices is more important than ever.
In Logentries’ recent article, 10 Best Practices for Log Management & Analytics, we explore 10 best practices for logging across today’s modern, highly-distributed systems. In the following excerpt from the article, we discuss how both centralizing and isolating log data is an important practice to follow:
Forwarding log data to a centralized location enables system administrators to grant developer, QA and support teams access to log data without giving them access to production environments. As a result, these teams can use log data to debug issues without risk of impacting the environment. Replicating and isolating log data also eliminates the risk of attackers deleting log data in an effort to hide security breaches. Even if your system is compromised, your logs remain intact.
