Think carefully about how you will build the solution so that it is a high-availability solution. That is the trick when using Elastic Stack. Examine what your needs are. I would rate Logstash at eight out of 10. I think the solution is really complete, with the components it has. It is a good solution.

Based on my experience, it's quite easy and manageable with small scale implementations, and the time to market is quite fast. I can have good monitoring with a couple of use cases set up in less than four weeks. In terms of other advice, it depends what I am looking for. Am I looking at this as a platform or for a specific use case? If I see it as a platform, I would definitely say it's a good platform to work on. In that case, I would rate it an eight on a scale of one to ten.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this system is to set it up so that you can manage it remotely. Overall, this product does what it is supposed to do, although there is always room for improvement. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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.

In the future, I only plan to use the on-premises and free community edition of the solution. I'd recommend it this is a solution to other users. I recommend the free version. The one problem is that this solution has limited features. The Platinum is less expensive in respect to other solutions. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

We are interested in learning more about plugins for specific firewalls or other products. The only problem with this solution is the development part, where we have to do it manually. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Our company uses Logstash for gathering the data, and Kibana for searching. The two are used together. This is a solution that I recommend. It is the best open-source product for people working in SO, managing and analyzing logs. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
