Taming Your Logging with the ELK Stack


In this episode of Vogon Poetry, Matt Will of Spreetail will be talking about using the ELK Stack to handle application logging and making life simpler.

The talk will cover getting the ELK Stack, its different components and how to get them up and running, and some basic configuration tips. He will also show how to set up the APM side of things so you can start monitoring the performance of your applications and storing that data all in a single place. Finally, Matt will show the dashboards available in the ELK Stack to help visualize your data.

While there is no actual poetry, we are throwing open the doors to Don't Panic Labs for the community to learn alongside our team.
