All applications generate logs. Logs are essential for understanding how software and systems are performing, identifying and troubleshooting issues, and ensuring compliance. Centralizing logs from different sources into a single location can greatly simplify log management, analysis, and monitoring .To be able to efficiently centralize logs , is very useful when debugging applications. There are various ways to efficiently centralize and search on application logs. While trying to learn some of those tools, I started learning AWS Opensearch(previously Elasticsearch service) service. This service really makes it easy to search and analyze the logs collected from different applications.
In this blog post, we will discuss how to stream logs from EC2 to CloudWatch and then to OpenSearch, enabling you to collect, store, and analyze logs efficiently and effectively. And then on the Opensearch cluster, how you can perform searches on the log content to analyze the logs.
