We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It is the best open-source product for people working in SO, managing and analyzing logs.ELK documentation is very good, so never needed to contact technical support.

It has the ability to alert and track logs from different sources.The ability to browse logs from multiple sources at the same time really speeds up root cause analysis.

Cons
If the documentation were improved and made more clear for beginners, or even professionals, then we would be more attracted to this solution.Email notification should be done the same way as Logentries does it.We set up a cron job to delete old logs so that we wouldn't hit a disk space issue. Such a feature should be available in the UI, where old logs can be deleted automatically. (Don’t know if this feature is already there).They don't provide user authentication and authorisation features (Shield) as a part of their open-source version.Authentication is not a default in Kibana. We need to have another tool to have authentication and authorization. These two should be part of Kibana.We had issues with scalability. Logstash was not scaling and aggregation was getting delayed. We moved to Fluentd making our stack from ELK to EFK.

There are a few things I would like to do with a few more complex queries which I am not able to do right now, because it is a SaaS solution.Since I used the beta, improvements are to be expected. The dashboard options could have been clearer, but I believe it is more a problem with the limited documentation available at the time.
