how do we do that? what's a loghost? just a syslog central server that receives everything? what about anonymisation? that's done on the remote hosts? what about non-syslog logs like apache?

if we go the prometheus route for monitoring, we are also probably going to use grafana for graphing/trending, and they have an interesting project called loki to aggregate and parse logs that we might want to look into.

another common alternative to syslog is logstash which, combined with ElasticSearch and Kibana makes for the acronym "ELK" that's commonly deployed as a stack, with Granafa sometimes replacing Kibana...
