The UI is flexible and the visibility of the dashboard is amazing.

Having a tool where you can find logs that were generated months ago, and being able to search over a long period of time, is great.

The automatic update of the graphs from a dashboard is very convenient.

Hi community, Grafana observability has Grafana for visualization and analytics, Loki for logs, Tempo for traces and Prometheus for metrics while ELK stack has tools like Elasticsearch for search, Logistash for logs and Kibana for visualization.  Which of these 2 platforms would you choose and why? Thank you.

Hi @Faustine Chisasa,  I will go with ELK + Grafana. Elasticsearch is highly distributed, scalable and fast. You got power of storage. Logstash is highly pluggable and rich in plugins. You can use any buffer or streaming platform in Logstash pipeline example: RabbitMQ, Kafka, redis, etc. ELK has watchers alerts. S3 searchable snapshot is the best thing in the latest version of ELK which gives you long retention capabilities and search directly from S3 without restore to Elasticsearch.  Grafana can be used to connect to Elasticsearch and you can use all dashboard templates for monitoring. Metricbeat gives you metrics from On-premise, EC2, Pivotal, cloudfoundry, cloudwatch.  Functionbeat gives you cloudwatch logs.  Grafana needs a separate license and native agents. So all in all, a premium ELK license with open-source Grafana is the best stack for observability.  Cheers, Sunil.

Clarity, any data visualisation should be easy to understand. Try to reduce clutter and make sure it relays the message. Still there is something important about style and how eye catchy it is but that is more to do with user preferences and in data journalism.
