Last time I mentioned that I was working on a central syslog. Part of the task was also possibility to easily go through the logs, preferably with some filtering and what not. ELK-stack is usually the first thing mentioned as a potential solution. Essentially the goal is to land your logs in Elasticsearch. The problem […]
Grafana is one of my favourite Open Source software of all time. I’ve been using it for years and am thrilled to see yet another great major release. I’m really looking forward to put my hands on all new workflow called Explore. Currently it integrates with Loki, but support for Elasticsearch is already on the […]
