VP Platform Engineering at Hydrogen
ELK Stack is made up of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. What we have is considered modified ELK Stack where instead of the Logstash we use Fluentd, but it serves the same purpose as basically a pipe to get the data into the Elasticsearch. We primarily use the solution for everything you could think of from error detection to general logging and auditing, to security awareness. View full review »

This solution is primarily used for log services and network appliances. Our director proposed that we buy six virtual machines with the six logs and about three bytes of storage. We use the solution on this. View full review »

Co Founder at Basheer Sharma Enterprises LLP
I was using this product up until recently when I changed companies, but I have been asked to implement logging in my new role and this is one of the options that I am considering. It was used in conjunction with Kibana to examine our logs and perform debugging. When a user complained about misbehavior in an application, we would research the logs, test, and try to find out where the bug is. View full review »

We are running Fortinet FortiGate for our firewall, and these are the logs that we are analyzing. Normally, we have a problem with the visualization part. View full review »
