- ELK stack introduction.

- Test ELK stack installation setup.
- ELK is an acronym for three open-source projects, such as Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana.
- Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine based on Apache Lucene.
- Logstash is a server‑side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources and sends it to Elasticsearch.
- Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs and provides dev tools to query the data in Elasticsearch.
Here we are using docker for setting up the ELK stack environment.
Install Elasticsearch, Kibana, and Logstash using the below compose file.
Don’t have docker installation, no issues
