Integrating Heartbeat into your Monitoring Story

The Elastic stack is often used for logging and monitoring services. Did you know it can also proactively monitor endpoints via Heartbeat? In this talk Andrew Cholakian will demonstrate how to monitor both internal and external services with heartbeat and integrate that information with other Elastic stack data, like log data. You’ll learn best practices and hear some tips and tricks as well.

Andrew Cholakian is a software developer on Elastic’s Beats team focusing on Heartbeat. Previously, he worked on Logstash. In his free time he enjoys reading, especially history.
