From web server logs to user interactions, modern applications generate an enormous amount of event data. The ELK stack — the combination of Elasticsearch with Logstash (or Beats), and Kibana — helps your business spin that data into gold by providing a platform that can consume, index, search, and analyze an enormous amount of data. In this talk, we’ll cover the basic components of the ELK stack and explain how to configure them for production use. We’ll also demo key management screens and show you how to use Kibana for analysis and reporting.
