Infrastructure metrics with Elasticsearch stack

For the operations team of any IT organisation it’s of utmost importance to have an overview of it’s infrastructure at any given point of time, whether it’s the response time of various customer facing systems or memory consumption stats of the processes running across servers. Traditionally, these stats were explored after some problem has occurred which can be anything from slow response time to certain processes taking over the CPU cycles. Thus it’s better to have a real-time insight into the infrastructure stats which enables DevOps team to quickly find and fix the cause rather than waiting for the problem to occur. In this blog post we would be exploring the Elasticsearch product stack to propose a solution for effective monitoring of the infrastructure using Elasticsearch, Kibana and Beats.
