Elasticsearch: Mining Metrics from Logs

by Jonathan Relf

With an increasing amount of log data from software & systems it can be hard to see the 'wood for the trees'. Metrics offer us a chance to digest and see trends.

In this session, you'll learn how features in Elasticsearch can help unlock numerical insights in log data. You'll see a demo of how these can be visualised with a brief look at Timelion & Machine Learning features now in Elasticsearch 5.4.
