Warm Up Logs from Cold Storage
Logs play several roles during an application’s lifecycle. They help to debug problems - some give us analytical data (like access logs) - and help provide an overview of an application’s state at a given moment. This requires different modes of access and visualization, and, because of the distinct behavior involved in each outcome, we often end up using different tools. For example:
for tailing logs live, we use Loki, for complex visualizations we prefer Elasticsearch, and to archive logs, we prefer object storage (like Amazon S3).
