OH: OverHerd, Episode 1

Welcome to OverHerd, a blog series chronicling the amusements (and occasional deep thoughts hidden within) of the Cribl Community Slack. Our Community Slack is usually hopping with questions, answers, and discussion, but there’s a lot of ridiculousness in the mix, and we like it that way :)

Cribl.Cloud – Observability meets Simplicity

Since the inception of Cribl LogStream, we’ve had a freely accessible product. LogStream has always been available as a download or a Docker container. Since we launched version 2.0, I’ve often said LogStream is the easiest distributed system to setup I’ve ever encountered. Set up a leader node , set up one or more worker nodes, point them at the leader, and you’re good to go. If you’re running Kubernetes, we provide easy-to-use Helm charts for getting up and running quickly.

The Unintentional March to Chaos…

No company starts out with the idea that their systems should be complex to the point of data chaos. It happens organically, through a series of legitimate decisions. Take, for example, a fictional company, “Acme Corp.” Acme is a company that makes everything and has an operations team that desperately needed a log management system, […]

Why Log Systems Require So Much Infrastructure

TL;DR Log systems are optimized for fast retrieval by indexing all of the data, but that performance comes at the expense of increased storage volume and CPU consumption. I discuss why log systems require so much infrastructure and suggest some approaches for building cost effective log data management. Overview Log systems like Splunk or ElasticSearch, […]
