  • Daniel Kühne

Tuesday 14th June, 2016

5:15pm to 6:15pm (CET)

Nowadays if you want to visualize logs on premise the obvious choices are the ELK-Stack or Graylog. But what if you want to you have a simple, fast and thin solution. And what if you want to do metrics and logs just with one agent. Heka to the rescue. In this talk I’ll give a short introduction to Heka, show how to setup a pipeline to analyse a sample logfile and create metrics from logfile. The logfile is then visualized in Elasticsearch and the metrics in InfluxDB. After you had a look at Heka maybe you’ll choose it for your next project.
