[openstack-dev] [Fuel] Removing logs from Fuel Web UI and Nailgun

I remember we’ve discussing this topic in our couloirs before but I’d like to bring that discussion to a more official format.

Let me state a few reasons to do this:

- Log management code in Nailgun is overcomplicated
- Working with logs on big scale deployments is barely possible given the current representation
- Due to overcomplexity and ineffectiveness of the code we always get recurring bugs like [1]. That eats tons of time to resolve.
- There are much better specialized tools, say Logstash [2], that can deal with logs much more effectively.

There may be more reasons bus I think even the already mentioned ones are enough to think about the following proposal:

- Remove Logs tab from Fuel Web UI
- Remove logs support from Nailgun
- Create mechanism that allows to configure different log management software, say Logstash, Loggly, etc
- Choose a default software to install and provide a plugin for it from the box
