Graphite Monitoring and Graphs
In previous chapters, you learned how to set up an ELK Stack and use the web-based interface Kibana to see the events from the data received by Logstash and Elasticsearch. You also configured remote hosts to send inputs to a centralized ELK Stack. Now a monitoring system keeps running for a longer period of time, and it keeps getting data from the services or server it’s monitoring. Monitoring systems generally don’t possess the functionality for long-term data analysis and storage. Fortunately, you can use Graphite with the ELK Stack, to gain more control over how you analyze your historical logs and data.
