The ELK stack consists of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Although they've all been built to work exceptionally well together, each one is a separate tool that is driven by the open-source vendor Elastic. Elastic has created an end-to-end stack that delivers actionable insights in real time from almost any type of structured and unstructured data source. So the course can be summarized into: 
  • An overview of the key features of Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana
  • A deep dive on how their powers combine to deliver an end to end solution for analytics, logging, search & visualization
  • Extensive hands-on demo of the Elastic Stack in action

After completing ELK Stack course, you should be able to:

  • Learn the fundamentals of ELK stack with different use-case

Tech Analyst : A 9.5 years young and energetic IT services company founded by IIT'ians, providing a full 360 degree solution to the clients across the globe. One of the main task of the company involves analyzing huge amount of data. They have decided to use open source tool ELK stack for their analysis due its several robust features


The task of the employee is to fetch the required data from the source to Logstash and run queries on elastic search and finally visualize the data with the help of Kibana.

Alice is a support engineer working in TS foundation, which is a software developing company. One of its feature is enabling single sign-on for its applications.

Her task is to help the customers, and troubleshoot issues when needed. Whenever there’s a ticket for an issue, the first place she checks in, is the logs in the designated servers. She keeps searching and searching for related words or keyword match. Meanwhile there is change in logs every minute, and this is making her search, more and more hectic.
How can we help her?

Well this is where ELK stack comes into the picture
ELK comes with elastic search, logstash and kibana stacked altogether to give her a full analytics system.

Elastic Search enables her to search logs easily and get to know the issue and resolve it in a faster manner; not only that she can get proactive by analyzing the logs, and see if any of those customers are facing any issues or failures.
Now she can log into Kibana and search for relevant keywords easily. She can even limit the research by using timestamp filter. Monitoring single sign-on activities can be easily done by using different visualization graphs on the dashboards

Goal: Let’s help Alice by introducing ELK stack to her, and helping her in understanding the core concepts and the technology behind it. This will help her in learning ELK architecture and various implementation of ELK stack in companies. 

Objectives: Upon completing this lesson, you should be able to:

• Introduce ELK stack and state its various benefits
• Get a brief idea about Architecture of ELK stack and various terminology associated with it.
• Learn why should we implement ELK in the company
• Get an overview of Elastic Search, Logstash and Kibana

• Introduction to ELK stack
• Why ELK?
• Architecture of ELK
• High level overview of 
o Elastic Search
o Logstash
o Kibana

Goal: Alice has learnt to the basic concepts of ELK stack. Now what if she has to work with new sets of inputs, let’s help her with the another component of ELK stack, logstash. This module will give her a basic introduction to Logstash and guide through the process of installing Logstash and verifying that everything is running properly. After learning how to stash your first event, you can go on to create a more advanced pipeline that takes Apache web logs as input, parses the logs, and writes the parsed data to an Elasticsearch cluster. Then you learn how to stitch together multiple input and output plugins to unify data from a variety of disparate sources.
Objectives: At the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

Goal: Alice got the overview of the ELK stack, now she wants a deep understanding of each component of the stack. Let’s help her in getting started, with a brief introduction to Elastic Search with a use-case. 
Objectives: Let’s Build an Employee Directory

We happen to work for Megabuilder, and as part of HR’s new initiative, we have been tasked with creating an employee directory. The directory is supposed to foster employer empathy and real-time, synergistic, dynamic collaboration, so it has a few business requirements:

• Enable data to contain multi value tags, numbers, and full text.
• Retrieve the full details of any employee.
• Allow structured search, such as finding employees over the age of 30.
• Allow simple full-text search and more-complex phrase searches.
• Return highlighted search snippets from the text in the matching documents.
• Enable management to build analytic dashboards over the data

• Elastic Search Overview
• Installing and running Elastic Search
• Indexing Documents
• Retrieving a Document
• Searching a Document

Hands On:
• Installing and running Elastic Search
• Indexing Documents
• Retrieving Full Document
• Retrieving a part of Document
• Checking Document Existence
• Updating a Document
• Deleting a Document
• Searching a Document (Overview)

Goal: Alice seemed excited and she is curious about learning searching in depth. She wants to explore more about Elastic Search. She understood its not just enough to use the match query. She needs to understand the data and run search query through it. This module explains her, how to index and query your data to allow her to take advantage of word proximity, partial matching, fuzzy matching, and language awareness.

• Structured Search
• Full text Search
• Complicated Search 
• Phrase Search
• Highlighting our Search
• Multi-field Search
• Proximity Matching
• Partial Matching

Hands On:
Above all topics are hands-on intensive

Goal: Alice learned and performed various searching queries and was satisfied with it, when she suddenly realized a problem. Her query was not able to remove distinction between singular and plural words, or between tenses. She even faced problem with typos and various other problem. Let’s help Alice in solving her issues by training her on how to deal with human language for improving performance.
Objectives: At the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

• Remove diacritics like ´, ^, and ¨ so that a search for rôle will also match role, and vice versa using Normalizing Tokens.
• Remove the distinction between singular and plural—fox versus foxes—or between tenses—jumping versus jumped versus jumps—by stemming each word to its root form in Reducing Words to Their Root Form.
• Remove commonly used words or stopwords like the, and, and or to improve search performance in Stopwords: Performance Versus Precision.
• Including synonyms so that a query for quick could also match fast, or UK could match United Kingdom with the help of Synonyms.
• Check for misspellings or alternate spellings, or match on homophones—words that sound the same, like their versus there, meat versus meet versus mete using Typos and Misspellings.

• Getting Started with languages
• Identifying Words
• Normalizing Tokens
• Reducing Words to their Root Form
• Stopwords: Performance versus Precision
• Synonyms
• Typos and Misspellings

Hands On:
Above all topics are hands-on intensive

Goal: Alice leaned all about how to search through her data, now once data is searched she needs to get a higher-level overview of the dataset and perform queries on it to get her answers in near-real time. This has made her task very tedious and tiring. Let’s ease her problem by training her with aggregation.
Aggregations will allow her to ask sophisticated questions of her data in near real time. With search, we have a query and we want to find a subset of documents that match the query. We are looking for the needle(s) in the haystack.
With aggregations, we zoom out to get an overview of our data. Instead of looking for individual documents, we want to analyze and summarize our complete set of data:

• How many needles are in the haystack?
• What is the average length of the needles?
• What is the median length of the needles, broken down by manufacturer?
• How many needles were added to the haystack each month?

Aggregations can answer more subtle questions too:
• What are your most popular needle manufacturers?
• Are there any unusual or anomalous clumps of needles?

• High Level Concepts 
• Getting started with Aggregation
• Time Analysis
• Filtering Queries and Aggregations
• Sorting Multivalue Buckets
• Approximate Aggregation
• Doc Values and Field Data

Hands On:
Above all topics are hands-on intensive

Goal: Alice was well-versed in working with SQL she thought that for handling relationships, the golden rule of relational database- normalize your data will be applicable in Elastic Search too. But as a matter of fact, this golden rule does not apply to Elastic Search. Joining entities at query time is expensive—the more joins that are required, the more expensive the query. Performing joins between entities that live on different hardware is so expensive that it is just not practical. In this module let’s discover how data is modelled in Elastic Search. 
At the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

• Handle relationship between the entities
• Discuss the pros and cons of different approaches
• Scale out quickly and flexibly.

• Elastic Search vs RDBMS
• Handling Relationships 
• Nested Objects
• Parent-Child Relationship
• Designing for Scale

Hands On:
Above all topics are hands-on intensive

Goal: The beauty of Elasticsearch is that it allows you to combine geolocation with full-text search, structured search, and analytics. 

For instance: show me restaurants that mention PIZZA, BURGER, and are within a 5-minute walk, and are open at 11 p.m., and then rank them by a combination of user rating, distance, and price.

At the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

• Use Geo-Points to calculate distance from a point, to determine whether a point falls within a bounding box, or in aggregations.
• Encode lat/log points as strings using Geohases, to have a URL-friendly way of specifying geolocations and indexing geo-points and geo-shapes in databases.
• Cluster geo-points into more manageable buckets with geo aggregation
• Geo Points
• Geohashes
• Geo Aggregations
• Geo Shapes

Hands On:
Above all topics are hands-on intensive

Goal: Learn to search, view, and interact with data stored in Elasticsearch indices. You can easily perform advanced data analysis and visualize your data in a variety of charts, tables, and maps.
