Sadayuki Furuhashi talks about Fluentd: Open Source Log Management from Librato on Vimeo.
This is a participation report for the SF Meetup. This meetup is probably data analysis for server administration. A log management is really far from my current job but I have been interested in fluentd since I knew that it is good approach to make data collection easy. And this is a good chance to hear about it from the founder. So, I participated in this.
