By design Kubernetes applications generate a high volume of log data across what could be hundreds of nodes. Centralized logging becomes critical for production applications, as it is otherwise near-impossible to quickly find the correct log file, and logs can be lost when pods crash.
Join Platform9 and JFrog as we show you how to quickly set up centralized logging with EFK (Elasticsearch, FluentD and Kibana; together one of the most popular open source Kubernetes logging solutions), and how to utilize the logging data to monitor & troubleshoot. We’ll provide a step-by-step demo of how to create a Kubernetes environment with the EFK logging solution using JFrog’s ChartCenter to find Helm chart applications for key components of this solution, and Platform9’s free Managed Kubernetes service to deploy an open source Kubernetes environment.
