    Example: Little Johnny's server went down... but why? He tries to check the system's logfile but it's so big and disorganized... maybe he should have treated logs as a continuous event stream and timestamp each event to at least know what happened when. After a while, he discovers that the server went down due to a lack of memory, as it was holding a 20 Gb log file... guess it would be better to keep logs as an external service. Little Johnny then configures his environment to use the open-source Fluentd to centralize different log sources and then route the logfile to an external data warehouse. Next time, debugging production issues will be a way less traumatic experience.
  • Is it a good idea to write logs into Kafka from Go services?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 5 Jun 2022
    This depends a bit on how/where you run your code, but I would not let your application be concerned with where the logs are pushed. I'd prefer just writing to stdout/stderr and let the host worry about where the logs go. This is where something like fluentd can help. It supports pushing to Kafka.
