Implementation of production quality ELK stack

Project Description

The request was initiated by Eben van Zyl on 01 June 2018.

The amount of logs produced by current systems makes it impossible to manually mine and use as monitoring or fault finding resources. The consumption, filtering and graphical display of useful information needs to be automated. Clear use cases have been identified where automation of log consumption can save time in fault finding. ELK stack has been used in the past in emergency scenarios and proved to add value. This will be a step in the right direction regarding our strategy to get performance and health parameters of services.
