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.

The lack of native ability to aggregate data from multiple sources could be improved. As it is not a data store, it is challenging to correlate data from multiple data sources. Adding an out-of-box capability to aggregate and correlate different types of data would make Grafana even better. It is limited on the reporting type supported, which is important for managerial-level officers who want reports that are either general or specific. Improvements in that area would be great. Machine learning capabilities are still limited. This is an improvement in that area is needed. Performance improvement when querying and searching textual data would be beneficial.

Perhaps the display of the trigger limits should be more efficient because it's difficult to see that in a graph. We also have an issue with flapping where values move up and down and knowing how to deal with that is quite complicated in Grafana.
