In these series, I’ve covered the integration between a Go service and the ELK stack from scratch.
Getting The Most Out of Your Logs with ELK
This part focuses on understanding what benefits ELK could bring you to your typical workflow & how it can help you analyse & debug production issues rapidly.
How to integrate your Go Service with ELK
In this part, we start getting our hands dirty by setting up a local cluster of a sample Go application & the various components, part of the ELK stack.
How to Use Structured Logs in your Go Application
This tutorial focuses on learning what structured logging is (which is usually used in conjunction with ELK) & what libraries you have available to implement it in your Go applications.
How to create a Logging Dashboard with Kibana
After instrumenting the application with proper structured logs, we start designing our actual dashboard in Kibana (the K in ELK), which is the UI of the whole machinery.
Using Kibana to Debug Production Issues
Finally, having our logging dashboard & application fully integrated, this tutorial provides you with the opportunity to actually practice using the fully integrated stack of applications & debug simulated production issues.
