The ELK stack is an acronym used to describe a stack that comprises of three popular open-source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Often referred to as Elasticsearch, the ELK stack gives you the ability to aggregate logs from all your systems and applications, analyze these logs, and create visualizations for application and infrastructure monitoring, faster troubleshooting, security analytics, and more.

E = Elasticsearch
Elasticsearch is an open-source, RESTful, distributed search and analytics engine built on Apache Lucene. Support for various languages, high performance, and schema-free JSON documents makes Elasticsearch an ideal choice for various log analytics and search use cases. 

L = Logstash
Logstash is an open-source data ingestion tool that allows you to collect data from a variety of sources, transform it, and send it to your desired destination. With pre-built filters and support for over 200 plugins, Logstash allows users to easily ingest data regardless of the data source or type. 

K = Kibana
Kibana is an open-source data visualization and exploration tool for reviewing logs and events. Kibana offers easy-to-use, interactive charts, pre-built aggregations and filters, and geospatial support and making it the preferred choice for visualizing data stored in Elasticsearch. 

Use cases:

Application Monitoring

Store, analyze, and correlate application and infrastructure log data to find and fix issues faster and improve application performance. You can receive automated alerts if your application is underperforming, enabling you to proactively address any issues. An online travel company, for example, can use Elasticsearch Service to analyze logs from its applications to identify and resolve performance bottlenecks or availability issues, ensuring streamlined booking experience.

Infrastructure Monitoring

Collect logs and metrics from your servers, routers, switches, and virtualized machines to get a comprehensive visibility into your infrastructure, reducing mean time to detect (MTTD) and resolve (MTTR) issues and lowering system downtime. A gaming company, for example, can use Elasticsearch Service to monitor and analyze server logs to identify any server performance issues that could lead to application downtime.
