Poll: What logs do you actually LOOK at?

by Anton Chuvakin

This is my 6th logging poll (vote here now!)- links to the previous five polls below.

This one is deceptively similar to the #1 below, but it is not. This poll is What logs do you actually LOOK at? and not Which Logs Do You Collect? In other words, are you a log packrat? Are you collecting and never using the log data? You are making a mistake, if you don't.

Past polls:

  • Poll #5 "What are your top challenges with logs?" (analysis)
  • Poll #4 "Who looks at logs in your organization?" (analysis)
  • Poll #3 "What do you do with Logs?" (analysis)
  • Poll #2 "Why collect logs?" (analysis)
  • Poll #1 "Which logs do you collect?" (analysis)


    UPDATE: analysis of this poll posted here. Enjoy!

    I'm supposed to *look* at log files?!

    Oh great.
