Check out this interactive demo to get a tour of what you can experience when you leverage Elastic Observability for log monitoring.
Learn the benefits of a log management solution, challenges you'll likely encounter along the way, and some tips to help you avoid the pitfalls that often appear when starting up or trying to improve your log aggregation.
Get started with a 14-day trial. Once you go to cloud.elastic.co and create an account, follow this video to learn how to launch your first Elastic stack in any one of our 50+ supported regions globally.
Once your deployment is complete select Collect and analyze my logs.
If this is your first time using Elastic you will need to add an agent, the preferred way to get your logs in. We suggest starting with the System logs integration. Simply type “System” in the search to select it.
When you select the Add System you’ll be prompted to walk through how to ingest your system logs.
First, you’ll add an Elastic agent, add and configure your integration, then start sending logging data into Elastic.
If you get stuck take a look at this guided tour for installing the System integration.
Check out these examples on how to use these integrations:
Learn best practices for working with unstructured log data and how to get started. Next, after you’ve ingested your data, it’s time to learn how to give your data more structure to answer even more questions.
Logs can provide a record of an event and the time that event occurred, which would then allow you to find errors within your code to troubleshoot issues. Each log is time-stamped and shows an event that happened at a certain point in time.
Kibana allows you to analyze logs with interactive dashboards to derive insights, automate workflows, find anomalies and trends, and more. Be sure to explore the tutorial library below and get more familiar with Kibana so that you can customize or create your own dashboards.
Thanks for taking the time to collect and analyze logs with Elastic Cloud. If you’re new to Elastic, be sure to spin up a free 14-day trial.
