The Platform Environment Logging

Datica has implemented a complete ELK stack for The Platform to manage acquiring and storing log data.

ELK stands for:

  • Elasticsearch - for storing and searching log data
  • Logstash - for sending and receiving log data to Elasticsearch
  • Kibana - for a visual interface into log data
