Managing the Elastic Stack in Production

There are many things to consider and many tools and techniques at your disposal when you begin running and managing the Elastic Stack in production. This talk will highlight new management features of Kibana and cover the most important elements for running and managing the Elastic Stack in production.

We'll walk the new administrator through key questions, like how to plan for long-term retention and how to know when it's time to add more nodes. You'll also learn how to use monitoring to proactively detect issues with your cluster and identify the root causes. Plus, see how you can use alerting to notify you if there are issues with specific data sources or if your users change their usage patterns.
