What Hadoop Apache Log Processing Entails
Processing your log files with Apache Hadoop sounds like a really cool idea, but it’s harder than it sounds to get meaningful insights. Here are the challenges your solution will need to address:
- “Spiky” data that may have bursts lasting several hours
- The need for extreme fault tolerance: Every log could be the one you need most when your application is on fire
- Near real-time processing to support operational troubleshooting use cases
- Time-series data views
- Potentially fast growth as your application takes off, exponentially growing your data storage costs
Even the best DIYers have found challenges to be really tough. Why not leave log management to the experts so you can focus on your core product differentiation?
