Most modern applications generate logs for all activities consisting of metadata regarding what was done. These provide crucial insight to the application’s health and can show when the system’s functionality has been compromised. Additionally, the data collected can provide knowledge on developing interests from application users. The main issue lies in the fact that an application can churn out thousands of logs over the course of its use which can easily prevent either of these bits of knowledge from seeing potential use. Hence the need for central log management.
