Using the ELK Stack service with Fluo Muchos

ELK is the acronym for three open source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine. Logstash is a server‑side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a “stash” like Elasticsearch. Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch.

After the setup has completed, a pipeline will be created for Logstash and Filebeat. To view the dashboard visit the Kibana web page.

For using Elasticsearch data:

  1. Connect to the Elasticsearch index. In the ‘Index Pattern’ field, enter * and click Next step.
  2. Select the ‘Time Filter’ field name from the dropdown. (Ex. @timestamp) Click Create index pattern.

On the menu on the left side corner, select Discover to view the incoming hits and query a specific subset within a selected timeframe.

For examples on how to query in Kibana please visit the Elastico website here .
