Learn to Love your Logs with Elasticsearch ELK

Learn to Love your Logs with Elasticsearch ELK

Given at OSDC 2014 in Berlin, this talk covers the wonderful world of ELK - Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana.

The coverage starts with talking about how the projects are open source and friendly, then introduces each project with features/purposes, and closes with use cases and demos (demos are missing because they were live.)
