What is ELK
If you’re in a situation where you manage large amonts of data logs, the ELK stack is exactly what you’re looking for. The ELK stack combines Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana into a simple, yet powerful, open source stack that lets you manage large amounts of logged data from a convenient graphical web interface.
All three tools are developed by Elastic, so they work in tandem perfectly, and they’re very easy to get set up on your Ubuntu system.
