    Good article in overall, but I think there is one thing that hasn’t been included, perhaps the most important one which you need in production – log shipping (or message forwarding) to a remote central rsyslog server. Storing logs in a local MySQL database is useful for a single machine, but you will never use such approach having hundreds of servers to manage. You will most likely forward them to rsyslog/Graylog/ELK.

      That’s indeed a great idea. I will consider it for a future article. However, AFAIK that’s not included in the exam.
