A book designed for SysAdmins, Operations staff, Developers and DevOps who are interested in deploying a log management solution using the open source Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana (ELK) stack.
In this book we will walk you through installing, deploying, managing and extending Logstash. We're going to do that by introducing you to Example.com, where you're going to start a new job as one of its SysAdmins. The first project you'll be in charge of is developing its new log management solution.
We'll teach you how to:
* Install and deploy Logstash.
* Ship events from a Logstash Shipper to a central Logstash server.
* Filter incoming events using a variety of techniques.
* Add structured logging to your applications.
* Output those events to a selection of useful destinations.
* Use Logstash's awesome web interface Kibana.
* Scale out your Logstash implementation as your environment grows.
* Quickly and easily extend Logstash to deliver additional functionality that you might need.
By the end of the book, you should have a functional and effective log management solution that you can deploy into your own environment.
Updated for Logstash and ELK 5.0.0!

This guide teaches you the foundationsof the AutoIt v3 language. You will learnabout variables and includes, graphicaluser interfaces, user-defined functions,and conditional and loop statements.You will then apply what you havelearned in examples related to the systemadministration field. The examples inthis Short Cut can be used to create anythingfrom a game modification to a logonscript that verifies Windows updates.
Recovery can be performed at the volume or copy pool level. This capability is designed to work specifically with DB2® Version 8 or later. With DFSMShsm fast replication, the backup and recovery of DB2 copy pools can be managed by DFSMShsm. DFSMShsm fast replication provides a quick, easy-to-use backup and recovery solution.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication consists of a technical overview of the DFSMShsm fast replication function in z/OS® V1R12 Data Facility Storage Management Subsystem (DFSMS). It provides you with the information that you need to understand and evaluate the function, with practical implementation hints and tips.
This book is written for storage professionals, database administrators, and system programmers who have experience with the components of DFSMS. It provides sufficient information for you to implement the DFSMShsm fast replication function in your storage environment.
In this book we explore IBM System Storage solutions for Business Continuity, within the three segments of Continuous Availability, Rapid Recovery, and Backup and Restore. We position these solutions within the Business Continuity tiers.
We describe, in general, the solutions available in each segment, then present some more detail on many of the products. In each case, the reader is pointed to sources of more information.
This IBM Redbooks® publication reviews the best practices for anyone who is implementing VMware® vSphere with N series unified storage arrays.
This paper provides a blueprint that illustrates how clients can create a virtualized infrastructure and storage cloud to help address current and future data storage business requirements. It explores the solutions that IBM offers to create a storage cloud solution addressing client needs. This paper also shows how the Reference Architecture for Virtualized Environments and the extensive experience of IBM in cloud computing, services, proven technologies, and products support a Smart Storage Cloud solution that is designed for your storage optimization efforts.
When used as the storage foundation, System Storage N series offers unified storage solutions. These solutions provide industry-leading technologies for storage efficiencies, instantaneous virtual machine and data store cloning for virtual servers and virtual desktops, and virtual data center backup and business continuance solutions.
This paper is for anyone who wants to learn how to successfully deploy a virtualized environment. It is also written for anyone who wants to understand how IBM addresses data storage and compute challenges with IBM System Storage N series solutions with IBM servers and networking solutions. This paper is suitable for IT architects, business partners, IBM clients, storage solution integrators, and IBM sales representatives.
This new workbook not only combines practical examples from Google’s experiences, but also provides case studies from Google’s Cloud Platform customers who underwent this journey. Evernote, The Home Depot, The New York Times, and other companies outline hard-won experiences of what worked for them and what didn’t.
Dive into this workbook and learn how to flesh out your own SRE practice, no matter what size your company is.
You’ll learn:How to run reliable services in environments you don’t completely control—like cloudPractical applications of how to create, monitor, and run your services via Service Level ObjectivesHow to convert existing ops teams to SRE—including how to dig out of operational overloadMethods for starting SRE from either greenfield or brownfield
Docker book designed for SysAdmins, SREs, Operations staff, Developers and DevOps who are interested in deploying the open source container service Docker.
In this book, we'll walk you through installing, deploying, managing, and extending Docker. We're going to do that by first introducing you to the basics of Docker and its components. Then we'll start to use Docker to build containers and services to perform a variety of tasks.
We're going to take you through the development lifecycle, from testing to production, and see where Docker fits in and how it can make your life easier. We'll make use of Docker to build test environments for new projects, demonstrate how to integrate Docker with continuous integration workflow, and then how to build application services and platforms. Finally, we'll show you how to use Docker's API and how to extend Docker yourself.
We'll teach you how to:
* Install Docker.
* Take your first steps with a Docker container.
* Build Docker images.
* Manage and share Docker images.
* Run and manage more complex Docker containers.
* Deploy Docker containers as part of your testing pipeline.
* Build multi-container applications and environments.
* Learn about orchestration using Compose and Swarm for the orchestration of Docker containers and Consul for service discovery.
* Explore the Docker API.
* Getting Help and Extending Docker.
In this collection of essays and articles, key members of Google’s Site Reliability Team explain how and why their commitment to the entire lifecycle has enabled the company to successfully build, deploy, monitor, and maintain some of the largest software systems in the world. You’ll learn the principles and practices that enable Google engineers to make systems more scalable, reliable, and efficient—lessons directly applicable to your organization.
This book is divided into four sections:Introduction—Learn what site reliability engineering is and why it differs from conventional IT industry practicesPrinciples—Examine the patterns, behaviors, and areas of concern that influence the work of a site reliability engineer (SRE)Practices—Understand the theory and practice of an SRE’s day-to-day work: building and operating large distributed computing systemsManagement—Explore Google's best practices for training, communication, and meetings that your organization can use
The books real-world configurations and supporting materials will enable you to deploy Nagios and integrate other tools (like MRTG and Snort) on a helpful step-by-step basis. Integrating Nagios with a variety of other tools can add more functionality to its internal monitoring and alerting capabilities. The book covers additional topics like security, redundancy and failover, and plug-in development. And it shows you how to create your own Nagios plug-ins, to monitor devices for which Nagios may not provide plug-ins.
