Log management seems so boring. Log rotation, retention policy, grep, yuck! What are your servers doing? Did last night's upgrade break anything? How are your users interacting with your products? Why did the site go down last weekend?

Get ready to turn your log pains into awesome visual insights and more!

BAM! Elasticsearch ELK! ELK stands for Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Each of these three are lovely, open source projects that, together, help you democratize your data. Put that data in the hands of coworkers who can use it! Improve your ability to react to problems, predict and plan for the future, and answer questions about the behavior of your business.

This talk will introduce some of the problems solved by the ELK stack and cover a variety of real use cases where log search and analysis are providing serious value and happiness for companies and users.

Attendees will leave the presentation totally full of excitement about this toolset and bursting with fresh ideas about how to tackle their sour logging problems.
