It Was the Best of Logs, It Was the Worst of Logs

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Logs are everywhere in your environment. They tell you the story of your network: what is happening during every moment of every day, what is working, and what has failed. All too often, we have a tendency to treat logs the same way high school students look at books – boring, archaic sources of information that are only consulted when no other option is available. However, this is not the case – logs are filled with interesting stories and sequences of events – stories that can make our work easier (or at least more interesting). This presentation will focus on making logging interesting, using a variety of stories and personal experience to highlight cases where logs were a key tool in answering questions and solving problems.
