About the Book
THIS IS AN ONGOING BOOK. SO, AS I'M STILL WRITING IT, I FIGURED IT WOULD BE FAIRER FOR MY BETA READERS TO GET IT FOR A DISCOUNTED PRICE (ONLY $9,99 / $14,99) BEFORE THE FINAL VERSION IS EVENTUALLY RELEASED (WHICH WILL COST $24,99 / $29,99). EVERY WEEK A NEW EDITION WITH A NEW CHAPTER WILL BE PUBLISHED FOR YOU TO DOWNLOAD, SO SOON THE BOOK WILL BE COMPLETE. YOU CAN CHECK THE BOOK'S ESTIMATED FULL TABLE OF CONTENTS AT https://www.graylogbook.com

In this hands-on book, you will learn how to manage logs using the awesome open-source Graylog and create a scalable, high-throughput and high-available log processing architecture deploying Elasticsearch, MongoDB and Graylog clusters on top of Docker/Vagrant and Nginx acting as reverse proxy. Also, we will use Fluentd high availability setup based on forwarders and aggregators to collect logs from various sources and send them to Graylog.
I use to say that development is development and production is production. Many things can (and I bet they will) go wrong in production, especially if your application is accessible on the Internet. When something crashes, guess who is your best friend? That's right: Logs.
I have successfully implemented a very similar architecture as the one presented on this book in production and it was able to ingest thousands of log messages per second and easily handle node failures. This is the book I wish I had found when I was learning how to implement a complex and scalable logging architecture in production; that's why I'm writing it.
It's also worth to mention that this book is a forever edition, which means that no matter how fast the technologies used here evolve, this book will be always kept up to date and of course you will get notified and will pay nothing to take advantage of the updates.
I hope you buy this book and have a very pleasant reading. Thank you very much!
