Thursday, November 8th 2012 – we are delighted to welcome Jordan Sissel on our show. Jordan is the developer of “logstash”. Jordan’s presentation is titled: Logstash, Open Source Log Management

What is Logstash?

Logstash is a tool for managing logs. Logstash helps take logs and other event data from systems and move it into a centralized location. The tool can be used to collect logs, parse data, store and search data. The software uses a web interface for searching and drilling into logs. This is a particularly great tool for those interested in intrusion detection and other penetration testing data research.

The software is open source and licensed under Apache 2.0.

Jordan is an exceptional and talented developer and we are excited to hear him talk about “Logstash, Open Source Log Management”
