Logging is an essential element of monitoring the health of applications, infrastructure, and networks. In analytics, anomaly and threat detection can be mission-critical. The vast array of log sources, including System, Web Server Access, Database and Event logs, coupled with a distributed logging architecture can bog down performance and create operational overhead.

In a Centralized Logging Architecture, shipping agents are not installed on each node, removing the operational overhead of managing each distributed agent and eliminating the performance degradation those agents cause. A Centralized Architecture also improves rack density, increases storage utilization and simplifies management. Learn more about Centralized Logging by reading this white paper.
