I have successfully installed the
Kibana) and can use it with
Logback logs on the local machine. But now I need to read the logs from the remote server. I think there is no need to install entire
ELK stack on the remote server, at least because
ELK consumes some resources. Now I have only one remote server and my plan looks like this: I can setup the
ELK stack on the my local machine and when I need to check the logs, I can connect the
Logstash to the remote server and read the logs. Easily. But I have two questions:
Is this a fine way to do this? I also thought about adding
Filebeatsto this pipeline, but I think I don't need it, because I will not have a constantly turned on computer that will constantly receive logs. I am looking for a simple solution for reading logs five to ten times a day.
How can I implement this?
