  • Elastic meetup at Betsson Technologies

    Betsson Technologies

    Happy new year everyone! We're starting off the new year with the next Elastic meetup on February 8 at Betsson Technologies! Philipp Krenn, the Developer Advocate at Elastic, will be giving the main talk about how to monitor your services. There will be food and beverages at 6:30pm. Philipp's talk will start at 7:00pm. About Philipp Krenn: Philipp is a Developer Advocate at Elastic, spreading the love and knowledge of full-text search, analytics, and real-time data. He is a frequent speaker at conferences and meetups about all things search & analytics, databases, cloud computing, and devops. Philipp lives in Vienna where he enjoys experimenting with software, organizing meetups, and sports. Abstract: "With microservices every outage is like a murder mystery" is a common banter. But it doesn't have to be! This talk gives an overview on how to monitor Spring Boot applications, since they are increasingly popular for building microservices. We dive into: System metrics: Keep track of network traffic and system load. • Application logs: Collect and parse your logs. • Application metrics: Get the information from Boot's metric and health endpoints and store it. • Request tracing: Use Sleuth to trace requests through a distributed system. • Uptime monitoring: Use Heartbeat to ping services and actively monitor their availability. All the data will be aggregated and visualized in Kibana, giving you an all around view of your system. This meetup is sponsored by:

  • Elastic Meetup @ Findwise

    Findwise office

    We're happy to announce the next Elastic meetup at Findwise on December 8. We will have a talk from Svetlin Stefanov from Findwise and we will also hear Tobias Karlsson from Elastic speaking. There will be food and beverages, sponsored by Tradera, at 6:30pm. The talks will start at 7:00pm Talk 1: Elastic Cluster – Performance Testing (Svetlin Stefanov) In this session you will learn about performance testing your Elasticsearch cluster so that you can better plan the hardware and the settings of your going-to-production cluster. If you are already in production, the tests will help you identify better configuration options or will enable you to benchmark new search features so that there will be less surprises when these are deployed. We will go through the typical performance test steps and will end up with a performance test demo. Bio Svetlin Stefanov TBD Talk 2: What’s hot and new in Elastic Stack 5.0 (Tobias Karlsson) • New logos and branding as well as a version jump and synchronization across all Elastic products. • Working with ingest nodes and what they mean for Logstash. • Scripting reborn with the new language Painless. • Good bye TransportClient, hello Java HTTP Client. • Kibana’s visual overhaul and time-series with Timelion. • Metricbeat and other Beats improvements. • Metrics in Logstash and soon persistency. Bio Tobias Karlsson: Tobias works at Elastic, where he’s part of the Solution Architects team. He loves working in the intersection of technology and business, helping customers apply relevant technology to solve their business challenges. For the last couple of years he has been focused on solving large scale, near real-time problems with distributed systems.
