Elasticsearch is booming. Together with Logstash, a tool for collecting and processing logs, and Kibana, a tool for searching and visualizing data in Elasticsearch (aka the “ELK stack”), adoption of Elasticsearch continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In this detailed (and free!) booklet Sematext DevOps Evangelist, Stefan Thies, walks readers through Elasticsearch and ELK stack basics and supplies numerous graphs, diagrams and infographics to clearly explain what you should monitor, which Elasticsearch metrics you should watch. We’ve also included the popular “Top 10 Elasticsearch Metrics” list with corresponding explanations and screenshots. This booklet will be especially helpful to those who are new to Elasticsearch and ELK stack, but also to experienced users who want a quick jump start into Elasticsearch monitoring.
