ElasticSearch Logstash Kibana

Overview

Requirements Overview

Monitor System With Collectd/ELK Stack

Collectd

  • Collectd – The system statistics collection daemon.
  • collectd gathers statistics about the system it is running on and stores this information.
  • Those statistics can then be used to find current performance bottlenecks (i.e. performance analysis) and predict future system load (i.e. capacity planning)

Elastic{Search}

  • Elasticsearch is a search server based on Lucene.
  • It provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a RESTful web interface and schema-free JSON documents.

Logstash

  • Logstash is a tool for managing events and logs.
  • You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (like, for searching).
  • If you store them in Elasticsearch, you can view and analyze them with Kibana.

Kibana

  • Kibana is an open source data visualization plugin for Elasticsearch.
  • It provides visualization capabilities on top of the content indexed on an Elasticsearch cluster.
  • Users can create bar, line and scatter plots, or pie charts and maps on top of large volumes of data.
