Whiteboard

Some discussion around this is needed, specifically what would be running and where. At the completion of the logging-container blueprint we should have an rsyslog server on each host aggregating the logs and writing them to disk the the option to forward them. That means this blueprint should be about what services we want to run and the containers needed to run them. I believe the common stack is Elasticsearch Logstash and Kibana -- SamYaple

I like the blueprint, but needs an assignee before approval -- sdake

Just wanted to throw another option to the discussion: https://jujucharms.com/papertrail/precise/3
Would the logging model being landed support multiple logging providers? How much effort would be involve in integrating with papertrail for example? -- diogogmt
