ELK in a Box: Logs You Will Actually Look At

Room 201

WSOD happens, hopefully not in PROD... When things go wrong people start digging into log files, but which log do you need? Drupal, webserver, database, cache? And which entries matters in the thousands and thousands of lines?

This presentation will talk about collecting, aggregating, and presenting logs in a way that make you actually want to use them. The ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) stack has become a favorite for DevOps teams. We will talk about methods to move logs, how ingest log files using Logstash and how to visualize and search using Elasticsearch and Kibana.
