Earlier this year I submitted a talk proposal to http://surge.omniti.com/2016 SurgeCon, based on the work I have been doing scaling the log searching infrastructure at work. I was notified recently that my proposal has been accepted, and I’m going to be http://surge.omniti.com/2016#BreandanDezendorf speaking!
It’s been a long an interesting road going from 30,000 to 200,000+ logs per second, as well as replacing or upgrading almost every piece of the logging infrastructure from pipelines to data storage to presentation. There were some nasty bumps along the way, as when the index of logs is measured in the hundreds of billions scaling limitations come in to play quickly - and we’re on track to be at or near a trillion logs in the search indexes in the coming months.
