Talk #1 Abstract: ELK Stack to Elastic Stack

At Nativo, the transformation is complete!! Elasticsearch 1.7, Logstash 1.4 and Kibana 4.2.1 are now in the rearview mirror. I’ll share the seamless migration to Elastic Stack v5.x. (Yes, seamless!! with help from my new favorite Elasticsearch feature Reindex API).  Deep dive into Time-Based Indexing, Hot-Warm Architecture and  other Tips & Tricks for Logstash and Metricbeat configurations that made the migration seamless.
