ELK Logstash Review

A simple and easy-to-use solution for IT monitoring and anomaly detection


What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for IT monitoring, predictive maintenance, and anomaly detection.

What is most valuable?

It's simple and easy to use.

What needs improvement?

This solution cannot do predictive maintenance, so we have to build our own modules for doing it.

It doesn't do advanced analytics. They should have some advance analytics in this solution.

With Kibana, we wanted it to be easier to use. The data visualization is there but it should be easier to use.

Also, they should start proving APIs for doing ML and AI.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable and so far, we have had no issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good. We are running it on an eight-node machine so far, and with eight nodes we have had no issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't contacted support. They do have the support and we have spoken with them over email. We might need their assistance next month.

What other advice do I have?

Anyone who wants to do IT log monitoring, realtime and who wants to do the anomaly detection, should go with this solution.

So far from what we have seen, I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
