Easily Meet Your Log Analysis Goals
Almost every software process — from operating systems to custom applications — generates logs. For today's IT operations, infosec teams, and business analysts, reporting on log data is more than just common practice, it’s expected. Filebeat provides a cost-effective, unobtrusive way to leverage log data by shipping it to Elasticsearch or Logstash.
Quickly Centralize Your Logs for Safe Keeping & Analysis
Your log data is valuable. Losing it because a disk fills up or a server fails can result in visibility gaps for your business. Filebeat protects against this by quickly and reliably shipping logs to Logstash and Elasticsearch for centralized storage and analysis.
Deepen Your Analysis by Enriching Your Logs with Logstash
While logs contain a lot of information, they can tell a richer story in the context of other data. For example, IP addresses become more useful when enriched with geolocation information. Filebeat ships data to Logstash for parsing, filtering, and enrichment prior to storing it in Elasticsearch.
Readily Resolve Problems with Real-Time Kibana Dashboards
With Kibana, the real-time visualization engine for Elasticsearch, you can visualize your log data to identify, assess, and act on errors and anomalies. With custom dashboards and reporting capabilities, Kibana allows you to visually explore log data shipped from Filebeat.
