>> Hey there, Cybrarians.
00:00
Welcome back to the Linux+ course here at Cybrary.
00:00
I'm your instructor, Rob Goelz.
00:00
>> In today's lesson,
00:00
>> we're going to talk about implementing logging.
00:00
>> Upon completion of this lesson,
00:00
you're going to be able to determine
00:00
the logging information you need to know for the exam,
00:00
and we're going to cover the plan on how
00:00
we're going to address this material in this module.
00:00
What will you take away from this module?
00:00
Well, you're going to walk away with
00:00
an understanding of how logging operates in Linux,
00:00
we're going to determine
00:00
what information we're going to want to log,
00:00
and we're going to be able to find
00:00
where information gets logged to,
00:00
where do we store our logs.
00:00
We're going to use this information
00:00
to troubleshoot and find issues.
00:00
Logs are great for finding issues of the services,
00:00
maybe things about their security posture,
00:00
or the security of the system,
00:00
as well as just general system health
00:00
>> of the Linux system.
00:00
>> Then finally, we're going to use this knowledge
00:00
to ensure we don't have logs filling up our system.
00:00
Too many logs equals low disk space,
00:00
and that's never a good thing.
00:00
In this module,
00:00
>> we're going to talk about finding key log files,
00:00
>> locating where those are and what they are,
00:00
we're going to manage logs with rsyslog,
00:00
we're going to roll our logs with logrotate,
00:00
then we're going to work with journalctl,
00:00
then finally, we're going to discuss
00:00
>> third-party logging agents at the end of this module.
00:00
>> But with that, we've reached the end of this lesson.
00:00
In this lesson, we covered the logging material
00:00
>> that's going to be covered on the exam,
00:00
>> and the road map for Module 18,
00:00
how are we going to address
00:00
the content that's on the exam.
00:00
Thanks so much for being here,
00:00
and I look forward to seeing you in the next lesson.
