Introduction to The ELK Stack: Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana

A session at Fossetcon 2014

Saturday 13th September, 2014

2:40pm to 3:20pm (EST)

During this presentation, attendees will see a brief presentation as an introduction to the Elasticsearch ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana) and then watch a live demo. (All three components of the Elasticsearch ELK stack are Open Source software under the Apache 2.0 License).

The demo portion will go from “bare-metal” to fully-installed and functional Logstash with searchable results in 20 to 25 minutes (even with running commentary and explanation!) to showcase just how quickly and easily you can start to gain value from the data in your logs.

Install and configure Elasticsearch & Kibana in minutes!

Configure Logstash:
Inputs: Simple file tail configuration to start capturing your logs in mere moments.
Filters: Learn about grok and how to configure some of the value-adding filter modules available.
Outputs: Simple Elasticsearch output configuration to enable easy storage and searching of your logs.

Kibana: How to get started visualizing the data you now have stored in Elasticsearch.
