What is most valuable?

Documentation is very good, so implementation is fine.

What needs improvement?

Email notification should be done the same way as Logentries does it. Because of the notification issue we moved to Logentries, as it provides a simple way to get notification whenever a server encounters an error or something unexpected happens (which we have defined using Regex).

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Logentries, but because it is open-source we moved to ELK as a part of cost-cutting strategy and evaluation of ELK. But the lack of a notification feature caused us to go back to Logentries.

What other advice do I have?

I give it a seven out of 10. They don't provide user authentication and authorisation features (Shield) as a part of their open-source version.

What is most valuable?

Elasticsearch Indexing and the Visualize tools of Kibana.

How has it helped my organization?

In my previous organization, I used this for central log management, increasing developer productivity.

What needs improvement?

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.

What other advice do I have?

I rate it at eight out of 10. It is scalable (if used properly), durable, and performance tested. If you are good to spend money, Splunk is way better for log management. There might be other use cases where you may need ELK.

What is ELK Logstash?

Logstash is an open source, server-side data processing pipeline that ingests data from a multitude of sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to your favorite “stash.”
