On Visible Log Data Explosion

A good piece with a lot of good info on logs and trends!

For example, "According to ESG Research, 44 percent of large organizations collect at least 1 terabyte of log file per month. Heck, 11 percent say that they capture more than 10 terabytes a month."

That's a lot of log! :-) And you know what? There will be more, MORE, M-O-R-E: "ESG Research reveals that large organizations plan to capture lots more log data from more devices for more analysis over the next few years."

Are you ready? Now it would have been appropriate for me to scream "buy LogLogic!", but I will resort to a milder "if you think you are ready, think again: are you ready to capture the data OR are you ready to MAKE SENSE of all this..."
