Best practice for log consolidation and email tracing
I have couple of postfix servers (ie same domain multiple mx) and
needs to have a web based interface for tracing mails based on
sender/receipient etc. greping logs from multiple servers for a
sender/recipient is tedious and I stated looking for writing a web
based tool for it. I found that postfix does not have a native way to
push logs to database and parsing the syslog is the only option. I am
just checking what are the best practices for parsing and putting the
logs in a db.
Another path I am willing for traverse is to add another log backend
for postfix. Is it a good idea to add stomp with log entries as json
so that logs can be pushed directly to couchdb?
