Application Logging Made Simple with Kubernetes, Elasticsearch, Fluent Bit and Kibana

Today, we are going to talk about the EFK stack: Elasticsearch, Fluent, and Kibana. You will learn about the stack and how to configure it to centralize logging for applications deployed on Kubernetes. We will focus on Fluentbit, as it is the lightweight version of Fluentd and more suitable for Kubernetes. Additionally, we will talk about how we reached the final solution and the hurdles we had to overcome. Last but not least, we’ll show you how we handled application logs without actually installing 3rd party clients.
