An Unusual Morning Today, I woke up in the morning as usual and started my normal routine. Then I see an email from the engineering lead explicitly tagging it as an IMPORTANT meeting during my standup time. I was surprised and got a feeling that something is wrong.

When I spent my new year evening with all my friends, I never thought that it will be the last such event in Australia. We all met and stayed at my friend’s place, Shivaji and had a lovely memorable gathering. This year, I was also planning to come back to India.

With ever-increasing complexity in distributed systems and growing cloud-native solutions, monitoring and observability become a very important aspect in understanding how the systems are behaving. There is a need for scalable tools that can collect data from all the services and provide the engineers with a unified view of performance, errors, logs, and availability of components. These tools also need to be cost-effective and performant. In this article, we will go through two popular stacks for logging in Kubernetes – EFK (Elasticsearch) and PLG (Loki) and understand their architecture and differences.

Welcome to the new year 2020. I want to take a pause to reflect on the last year on personal and professional front. The year was nearly flat and steady.

I changed many projects this year unlike one in past one decade.

Hi World! I have setup this blog after various stints which covered personal and Oracle database stuff but for a long time, I have been away from the blogging. The reason is primarily getting busy with family life and switching roles. Last week, I came across my twitter timeline bidding .dev domains and I got excited to reserve my own last night.
