Monitoring is a simple task, but with the right tools it is not a hard task. However, events like Black Friday/Big Billion Day can push your application to the limit, and even cause crashes.
As the system is stressed, it is a lot more logs, which may crash the monitoring system as well. In this talk I will walk through the best practices when using the Elastic Stack to centralize and monitor your logs/metrics/apm data. I will also share some tricks to help you with the huge increase of typical traffic on events like Big Billion Day.
- Monitoring architectures
- Optimal bulk size
- Distributing the load
- Index and shard size
- Optimizing disk IO
Key Takeaway: best practices when building a monitoring system with the Elastic Stack, advanced tuning to optimize and increase ingest performance.
