Heroku logging - tail Heroku logs with Papertrail

Standard logging solutions may not translate to Heroku

  1. Adding applications can increase logging complexity.
  2. Horizontal scaling leads to ineffective logging when loggers aren't configured properly.
  3. Application logging ends at the dyno, leaving Heroku itself unmonitored.
