Logging on Steroids - How we manage logs at Inmobi

by Ajay Yadav (speaking)

Technical level


This talk aims to share some best practices and tips on logging and introducing tools for a scalable setup for logging, collection of logs and parsing/visualizing interesting metrics derived from them. If your application or webserver writes logs then this is the talk for you.


This talk will introduce some best practices around logging in Python(we will use Django as an example) web apps and how to get the maximum out of it. We will cover use case for both webserver logs and application logs and alternative formats for logs like json. We will cover some advanced features in python library and will move on to a full fledged architecture to write, collect, parse and visualize logs from a cluster of application(s) using open source tools like Logstash, Elasticsearch etc.

Speaker bio

I have almost 7 years of experience in building scalable web applications. I have been working with Python and Django since last 3 years. Currently, I lead the Python efforts at Inmobi and would like to share with everyone our logging infrastructure setup for the first time.
