Using Beaver to Ship Log Files via Redis to Logstash

Beaver’s explicit goal is to provide a shipper that can be used in environments where one or more of the following is true:

  • Operations cannot support the JVM on an instance
  • Developers are more experienced with debugging Python performance issues
  • The server does not have enough memory for a large JVM application
  • Simply shipping logs to an intermediary for later processing is enough

What I’m not very clear about is the need for Redis, but I assume the main reasons could be: 1) logstash doesn’t accept pushed events; or 2) logstash might drop/lose events if pushed to0 fast.
