Start looking at the challenges of monitoring real web apps and how Splunk can solve some of these problems.
- [Instructor] For this last chapter,…we're going to take some of the things we've learned…and apply them to a real web app.…I've set up a simple Gitea server…and an Nginx reverse proxy in the Vagrantfile.…They should have started when you ran VagrantOp.…Let's look at how you might monitor these systems…without a centralized logging solution like Splunk.…You'd basically have to log in to each machine via SSH…and start looking through the log files.…This is problematic for a couple of reasons.…One is that it opens up the risk…of accidentally breaking something about your installation…while you're looking at logs.…
It's also just tedious…because you have to connect to each server separately.…It doesn't let you cross reference.…What if you were having an issue…with how the app and the proxy work together?…Errors may show up in both logs…but you can't see the problem at the same time.…Another major problem is the signal-to-noise ratio issue.…It isn't very easy to filter out just the log entries…that matter especially when you're responding…
