We would like to proudly announce our first public release of
‘logback-redis’. This library enables JVM applications to log directly into
a Redis+ELK stack with logback.


The logback-redis appender has been battle-tested in conjunction with
logstash-logback-encoder [1], which takes care of JSON-encoding and

We aimed for:


   developer-friendliness (easy to configure, safe to use)

   maximum throughput (Redis pipelining support)

   high software quality

We use this library for apps in a RELK (Redis-Elasticsearch-Logstash-Kibana)
environment in production for over six months, handling easily 1000
messages/second per host, used by over 50 installations concurrently.

Why did we implemented another solution?

> We experienced load problems with existing libraries at 100 m/s.

Another similiar library is aqlu/logstash-logback-encoder-extends [2].

We welcome any feedback at https://github.com/idealo/logback-redis.
