What's the Latest in Logstash? (2017)

This session attempts to address one of life’s ultimate questions: how many logs can a Logstash stash?

Suyog and Jordan will answer this and other burning Logstash questions, like: can we go faster? What is this persistent queue thing? Any cool new plugin developments? How do I monitor Logstash? What is in the future for the Logstash configuration? How does the Logstash team keep sysadmins and DevOps in mind when working on the product? Is Logstash ever going to get a UI?

Expect to leave with a clear vision of where Logstash is headed and how it fits in as a critical part of your infrastructure.
