logstashgroklog managementiisphp error logphpLogstash is a tool for doing fancy stuff with log files. Its main purpose is to help administrators/IT staff with the monitoring of logs, specifically it can be used to push logs to a central location where the logs are stored and indexed for later searching. A basic logstash setup (like the one I am implementing at work) consists of log shippers (web servers and database servers) and then one server where the logs are stored, indexed and searched (in my case this is a Ubuntu server).
