For detailed look at the goals, design, and implementation of this project, check out these blog posts. Ekanite is a high-performance syslog server with built-in text search. Its goal is to do a couple of things, and do them well -- accept log messages over the network, and make it easy to search the messages. What it lacks in feature, it makes up for in focus. Built in Go, it has no external dependencies, which makes deployment easy.
