Case Studies Wanted

Hello Everyone,

I am working on a book and lecture series on aggregating, processing,
searching, analyzing and visualizing large amounts of log data using open
source software.

I am at a point now in the process where I would like to solicit use cases
for some chapters in the course.

I think it is a good idea if we can discuss a variety of use cases that
leverages these open source tools to solve these problems.

These are some of the key areas of what the book and course is focussed on:

  • Aggregating Log Data from Multiple Sources at High Velocity and Volume
    using Apache Flume and Logstash.
  • Parsing the Raw Log Data to Extract Meaningful Information.
  • Buffering the Log Events before being routed to centralized storage.
  • Storing the buffered Log Events in Centralized datastores like
    ElasticSearch and HDFS.
  • Processing and make sense of the log data stored in HDFS.
  • Interrogating and Searching through the log events indexed in
    ElasticSearch in real time.
  • Visualizing patterns, trends and information in the log data.

If you have a unique setup, strategy, use-case, requirement, need or
problem you have solved or are in the process of solving, I would like to
hear about it.

Please drop me a line at (israel @ aicer dot org)

Please make sure to include the phrase "Case Study" in your email subject
so that my filters can pick it up.

Thank you.
