18 You guys should check out the ELK stack:
21 Basically, transform logs to JSON with logstash, throw the JSON into
22 elastic search, and make plots with Kibana. We use it at work; it's
23 absolutely fantastic.
25 You can save Kibana dashboards and have them auto-update every 5 or 10
26 seconds (plenty of other granularities as well), and have a "real-time"
27 view of, let's say, job errors or running jobs or utilization.
