Today I'm going to present you an ELK - Elasticsearch stack solution and how to start with it :) Checkout :)
Elasticsearch - what is it?
Elasticsearch is a tool - or rather a stack of tools called ELK which combines at least 3 apps: Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana.
Logstash is just a propagator of data to searcher-elasticsearch which is visualised within Kibana :) That's a big shortcut of what ELK stack is.
Details and information about that are widely spread all over the internet, just check firstly here - at documentation
Elasticsearch ELK Stack with docker.
Based on tutorial there is an easy
docker-run command for elasticsearch:
docker run -p 9200:9200 -p 9300:9300 --name elasticsearch -e "discovery.type=single-node" docker.elastic.co/elasticsearch/elasticsearch:6.2.2
docker pull docker.elastic.co/logstash/logstash:6.2.2 docker pull docker.elastic.co/logstash/logstash-oss:6.2.2
Without any volumens and configuration:
docker run --rm -it --link elasticsearch:localhost docker.elastic.co/logstash/logstash:6.2.2
And with only one config file:
docker run --rm -it -v ~/settings/logstash.yml:/usr/share/logstash/config/logstash.yml docker.elastic.co/logstash/logstash:6.2.2
Run without configuration (just basic):
docker pull docker.elastic.co/kibana/kibana:6.2.2 docker run --rm -it --link elasticsearch:localhost -p 5601:5601 docker.elastic.co/kibana/kibana:6.2.2
I've decided to make a simple github repo which intend is to use it as a starter for anyone looking into ELK first time.
Enjoy it :)
