ELK for logfiles

Hi,

I am planing to use ELK for our log files.

I read docs about logstash, elasticsearch and kibana.

Still the whole picture is not solid.

Especially the reporting area is something I can't understand up to now.

Kibana seems to be a great tool to do the visualization.

But can I get the single log for debugging the root of problems?

Example: I see that 99 systems work fine, and 1 systems emits warnings.

Which interface could I use the see the logs in ElasticSearch
of this system?

Needed features:

Show all logs from system "foo" in the period between 2015-03-27 00:00 and
00:10 (ten minutes).

Show all logs with log level "error" of system "foo" in day 2015-03-27

Is Kibana the right tool for this?

Or am I on the wrong track?

Which tool could be used to analyze log data in ElasticSearch?

Yes, that's exactly what ELK will do.

  • Logstash to collect your distributed logs
  • Elasticsearch to store them centrally
  • Kibana as the dashboard to search and display results from
    Elasticsearch using whatever criteria you like

Both Kibana 3 and 4 have the option to visualise the data in various
charts, etc, as well as looking at the raw log data, so seems to be a good
fit for what you're trying to do
