Centralized Logging with the Elastic Stack: Getting Started

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
It can be quite difficult to create a centralized dashboard and repository for all alerting, monitoring, and logging for a company-wide server infrastructure. In this course, Centralized Logging with the Elastic Stack: Getting Started, you'll learn how to leverage tools like Elasticsearch, Kibana, and the Beats tools to do exactly that. First, you'll build a back end repository using Elasticsearch. Then, you'll start to deploy Filebeats, Metricbeat, Winlogbeat, and more to target servers. Finally, you'll learn how to coalesce all that data into useful charts and dashboards in order to monitor the status of server resources. As a bonus, you'll also learn how to to setup active alerting to send messages to email, SMS, Slack, Hipchat, and more. When you've completed this course, you'll have the skills to setup a completely open source alerting, monitoring, and logging system from scratch.
