Our primary use case is essentially as a visualization of system and application logs as well as metrics, and we have time-based analysis that we like to do as well. We are customers of ELK and I'm an engineer.

The primary use of this solution is to read logs and share them with colleagues. You can store logs that were written months or years ago, which is fantastic.

Creating reports and getting information out of Orchestrator is the primary use of Kibana for us. Orchestrator is a cloud environment where bots run and create logs, and so these logs info get reported in Kibana.

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.
