Fresh from the Velocity NYC conference is the latest presentation from Sematext engineers Rafal Kuć and Radu Gheorghe — “From zero to production hero: Log Analysis with Elasticsearch.”

The talk goes through the basics of centralizing logs in Elasticsearch and all the strategies that make it scale with billions of documents in production. They cover:

  • Time-based indices and index templates to efficiently slice your data
  • Different node tiers to de-couple reading from writing, heavy traffic from low traffic
  • Tuning various Elasticsearch and OS settings to maximize throughput and search performance
  • Configuring tools such as logstash and rsyslog to maximize throughput and minimize overhead
