Can Distributed Tracing Replace Logging?

Logging has been around since programming began. We use logs to debug issues and understand how software works at the code level. After logging and debuggers, profilers are a dev’s best friend when writing code and may run in production with limits to reduce overhead. As we distributed architectures — making systems more complex — centralized log aggregation was soon necessary. At that point, we had to analyze this data. Hence, log analytics technologies were born.

Using the Prune Filter in Logstash

Logstash has a number of helpful plugins. We’ve covered the mutate plugin in great detail here, as well as Logstash grok, but it was time to go over some of the others. Here, the Logstash Prune Filter will get its due attention. Its existence owes to the need to remove fields according to select blacklists or whitelists of field names and their associated values. Put more curtly, it prunes the excess branches (fields) in your garden (your data).
