Help with architecture

We have moved to a distributed Linux/Apache Tomcat environment, and the
logs [apache, tomcat, applications, sys, etc] are killing me. We keep
talking about centralize logging but doesn't seem like an easy task. I've
been reading the docs on ELK, and I like what I see. What I'm still not
seeing is the overall architecture in a distributed system. So I have a
Logstash process on each of my server nodes? Then each of those nodes
parse and report back to a centralized Elasticsearch engine? Is there any
documentation that anyone could point me to get a better understanding?

So that is question 1. The second question is that we visualized a copy of
our production in our test environment. How can I keep the events separate
from our production and test environments?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Josh

There's heaps of good docs;
http://logstash.net/docs/1.4.2/
http://www.logstashbook.com/

If you want separate data then keep separate stacks! You can use the one ES
cluster if you want and then just use different indexes.
