Short one minute demonstration of a Unix module for standardizing your logging or embedding logging in new scripts. If you do one thing well, make it be logging, even if you don’t do the monitoring part well. If you can get it to the log(s) you are setting yourself up for options. Every script running on every host should be logging to as few files as possible. Try to achieve 100% log file accountability. Automate the process of discovery and accountability. Meaning, automate the process of finding every job running on every host and validating that the job is logging to a file that is indexed or registered somewhere. Try to use a module like this to bring some level of standardization to the process.
