Elastic Observability Engineer


Course Summary

This two-part, instructor-led course provides a strong foundation on using the Elastic Stack to implement system observability. You will learn how to collect logs, metrics, and APM data, and then ship them to a single datastore — Elasticsearch. You will also learn how unified observability data can be made even more actionable through machine learning and alerting, as well as easier to correlate data across different sources. Using Kibana, you will also explore how to visualize your observability data through an intuitive user interface. After completing this two-part course, you will be well on your way to becoming an Elastic Certified Observability Engineer.
