The increasing reliance on APIs and API management requires the ability to collect, augment, store, and visualize system metrics and logs in real-time from host systems and relevant services. In this course, you’ll learn how the components of the ELK stack work together and how to perform API analysis using the ELK stack. You’ll then explore the purpose and benefits of Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash. Next, you’ll learn how to install and configure Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash. Lastly, you’ll examine the use of Elasticsearch Notifications for notifying team members when API services have issues, and how to install and configure Elasticsearch Notifications.
