ELK Logstash Valuable Features

Senior DevOps Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

In terms of query resolution, error searching finding and production issues, we're able to find issues quicker. We don't need to manually obtain the logging reports. All bugs in code are quickly identified in the logs as they are in one centralized logging location.

The feature that I have found most valuable is the infrastructure monitoring part because it is quite easy. If you want to get up and running, we could create use cases in four to five days. So the initial infrastructure for simple analytics is quite easy.

ELK Logstash is easy and fast, at least for the initial setup with the out of box uses. I'm not talking about advanced use cases, but the basic ones are quite easy to configure.

All of the features on the solution are useful due to the fact that I have the full Stack, therefore I can collect and then visualize. We have the dashboard tutor as well.

The solution has a good community surrounding it for lots of helpful documentation for troubleshooting purposes.

The solution is able to handle searches quickly and efficiently. It's much faster than other solutions we've tried. It spends far less time on searches related to capacity and indexing information.

The possibility to stack, locate, and search with your indexing feature at a high rate of speed is its best feature. 

It helps that the solution can work together with the infrastructure agents to get the metrics we need. 

The integration is quite good.

The initial setup is not difficult. It's easy to set up and customize. It's a strong selling point for the solution. 

It's easy to collect the data.

The documentation is big. It's very well documented.

It's working and easy to work with.

The cost is reasonable. It's not overly pricey.

Recently I started using some Kibana alerting, which is in the latest versions of Kibana. It's very helpful in general.

You can't beat the price as it is basically free. There are also a lot of features on offer.

We've found the initial setup to be quite straightforward.

The stability is excellent.

The most valuable feature for me is Discover. I have not used all of the features, so I can't say that this will be best for everyone.

I use the stack every morning to check the errors and it's just so clear. I don't see any disadvantage to using Logstash.

Consultant at Sun Cloud LLC

Its flexibility is most valuable. We can have a number of scenarios, and we can get logs from anything. If we know how to use Logstash, we can tweak it in many ways. This makes the logging search on Elastic very easy.

With Kibana, we can make very beautiful dashboards the way we wanted. It makes sense for the business.
