Blur does suport NRT (like ES & Solr) in a couple ways - take a look
at the various "mutate" methods of the service[1].  Using mutate
you'll see changes directly, for your logging use case, perhaps the
bulkMutate[Start | Add | Finish] would be more appropriate though.

Unfortunately right now, it'd be an application-specific approach
[again, using mutations] - there's nothing built-in to age-off old
