Which is better for logserver, S3FS or EBS?


(Babeesh) #1

I dont know whether my question make any sense or not, but I really stuck in this area.

I need to use AWS S3 for storing logs. But on searching I came to know that, S3 could only be used for storing snapshots.

My requirement is , logs in elasticsearch should store in another location and view the logs in kibana.

Is it possible to use S3FS or EBS for this purpose? How to use this ?

I wouldn't use S3FS, it'd make ES horribly slow. EBS might be ok, but you'd want to test.

Can you suggest me some good tutorials for EBS and using EBS with logserver?

I don't know of any.
