ELK Stack (Elastic, Logstash and Kibana)

Complete stack is open-source, see more.

  • Logstash
    Server to process incoming logs

  • Elastic
    Data storage for all of the logs (ex. Elasticsearch)

  • Kibana
    Web interface for searching and visualizing logs

  • Filebeat
    Filebeat is file harvester, mostly used to fetch logs files and feed them into logstash. A tool to collect logs locally and prepare it for processing elsewhere. Installed on servers to send their logs to Logstash, as a log forwarding agent. Ex. names: Logstash Forwarder, before that: Lumberjack.
