Centralized Logging and Monitoring Project

Traci Farrell's picture

Overview

Reviewing system and network logs is critical in managing your IT systems. To do so at scale requires a centralized log repository as opposed to each system storing logs locally. Centralized logs allow for system activity reviews, baselining in order to identify unusual behavior, troubleshooting issues, and satisfying compliance requirements.

What to expect

This project will be mostly behind-the-scenes and primarily affect UCSF IT and some departmental IT processes. There should be no impact to the end user.
