Storing and Monitoring Rails Logs on Amazon CloudWatch

If you deploy any type of application on AWS, such as a Ruby on Rails web app; then your application will generate large amounts of logs. Hence, you will need to store and monitor these logs somewhere to understand what is going on when an unexpected event occurs.

In today’s blog post, I will describe how you can start storing your application logs on Amazon CloudWatch by using a Ruby on Rails web application as an example. The same principles here would apply to other types of application logs as well. Read more at Storing and Monitoring Rails Logs on Amazon CloudWatch post.
