Facebook Scribe goes open source via Thrift - InternetNews:The Blog - Sean Michael Kerner

"Scribe is a system for collecting massive amounts of data from a large number of servers, and we use it for everything from tracking how much memory a database is using to delivering relationship stories into News Feed," Facebook developer Robert Johnson blogged. "Before we wrote scribe, we tried a variety of open source and proprietary systems, but none of them could keep up with the massive amount of information our users were generating. So we wrote our own system, conceived from the start to handle the sorts of problems you only encounter at such large scale."
