Overall Satisfaction with Elastic Observability

Lets us monitor the performance and health of our mission-critical services with the speed of Elasticsearch. I use it for web server log analytics, searching for vulnerabilities and changes to the file logs and system metrics traffic. Elastic Observability has great search functionality and dashboard visualizations and ElastiFlow to monitor the real-time traffic. We save a lot of time. It does the job extremely well.

Great platform for managing application and server logs at a large scale. Elasticsearch can be integrated into 3rd-party software. For example, when combined with Kibana, beats, and logstash to build a full ELK stack it is very powerful and extremely useful for log evaluation, analysis showing detailed information, and creating a monitoring system.
