Elasticsearch / Elk

    Just wondering if anyone is using this toolset to gather/display data. Currently trying to trial-test it with a CSV data source. The visualisations are nearly real-time and fairly customisiable but it does seem to take up a good amount of diskspace.

    Only came across this forum recently so apologies for the late reply

    I setup an ELK stack at work however when it came to the final stage of getting it to report on server logs I realised that it was mainly for Linux boxes - which we have plenty of, however our critical servers are windows based and I never got around to looking into this more & smoothing it out.

    All I wanted was a URL that could output logs & system issues from servers across the company.

    Hopefully yours is going well - Kibana looks very tidy I have to say

    The setup for ELK on windows is also possible, but getting the data input in bulk was a bit tricky so I've found best to keep the systems seperate. Upgraded to the 4.1.1 version of Kibana. Nicer graphics to work with but a steepish learning curve, especially if you need to drill down and make changes to the underlying queries.

    I wonder could you pull graph data from a nagios install to the graphics in Kibana look pretty class, must give it a look tomorrow

    I've not used nagios. For general monitoring, nmon which has a nice tie in with excel. But for ES I'd recommend either the free plugins like head & big desk or the ES plugin (free to Dev) of Marvel which gives an excellent state of the cluster/general server health.
