Subject Centralizing web server access logs - syslog or tailing log file?
Date Sat, 25 Feb 2012 15:39:35 GMT
I am new to Flume, just a quick question:

Q, I have 10 web servers and need to centralize the access log for analyses
purpose, I have done some research and basically you have two way to send
the log to the "collector", that is using the syslog or tailing the access
log files.

In term of scalability and reliability, which method you would suggest? For
me, seems syslog is more reliable. Any comments?

Thanks.
