IBM Bluemix Platform Logging with the Elastic Stack

IBM Bluemix platform logs to the Elastic stack. Learn about the flexibility of our logging solutions in microservice environments. See Docker and Cloud Foundry logging – no user configuration necessary. Runtime logs are easily added.

In this session, Charlie and Ray will show an example logging from a Watson service. They'll also share details on their capabilities as well as how they deliver cloud scale logging built on the Elastic Stack.

  6. User Scenarios • Bluemix Public Cloud users • Large number

    of groups ( Bluemix spaces ) 10s of thousands per instance • Generating a variety of log data – platform, application, and external • Daily ingest volumes from kilobytes to gigabytes • Many users engage in microservices development projects and DevOps • Bluemix Local and Dedicated Cloud users • Dedicated private clouds hosted @IBM or @Client-premise • Bluemix local runs on VM. • Internal IBM Infrastructure • Small number of groups • Each with heavy log requirements (avg 3-5 TB/day ) • Data from all compute types
  7. Implementations Bluemix Public Cloud users • Multiple stacks deployed in

    3 WW datacenters • >3TB/day per Logging stack Bluemix Local and Dedicated Cloud users • Deployed in 3 hypervisors for HA • 2 logging instances for IBM/Client data isolation • Supporting a variety of daily log volumes Internal IBM Infrastructure • Node size depends on team • Customized retention and tenant ingestion policies • <3TB/day per Logging instance
  8. Demo of logging in Bluemix using the Elastic Stack Randy

    was tasked to build their banking app in the cloud, using microservices, then extend it with cognitive APIs. In this demo we will see • Application logging with different runtimes • Across different compute types • Extended to include a Watson API • Visualized with a consolidated Kibana dashboard • All with little to zero configuration
  9. Demo Summary • Node.js and Liberty runtime logging • Cloud

    Foundry and Docker Containers – into same space • Sentiment analysis with Watson Tone Analyzer • Log Analysis with Kibana - debugged to line of code • All with little to zero configuration
