Hello I'm curentilty using logback for logging, what is the easiest path to get my logging into CloudWatch? I see that there is many paths: log to file > file to cloudwatch, logback provider, slf4j provider ....

if you run in Docker, there's awslogs driver (comes with Docker) which can ship logs to Cloudwatch

viesti17:01:41

if you run in EC2, there's Cloudwatch logs agent, which can ship logs to Cloudwatch: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/logs/QuickStartEC2Instance.html

agent is good in that if the app goes wonky, then logs will still probably be shipped

viesti17:01:40

but if in docker land, I'd go for awslogs agent

I use Fargate, and send my logs to stdout

viesti19:01:51

this is the case handled by awslogs driver (from user point of view, logging happens to stdout)

There are logback appenders that send logs to CloudWatch Logs, for example: https://github.com/dibog/cloudwatch-logback-appender

You can configure it via logback.xml .

This can be used if you have normal java process running on EC2 instance.

those appenders tend to pull in a lot of dependencies
