As a follow up to my post on logging, I thought I’d point out something called AMQP. I received the idea after reading a comment on High Scalability’s post about Spread.
More advanced or dense logging practices may find these larger systems quite useful when the application begins to require a high-level of availability. Instead of logging messages and tracebacks, you could also log pickles and files easily.
It’s not the only useful application for such an advanced system, but I thought it might be of some use to anyone who needs a robust and available distributed messaging system.
