I'm working on my first implementation of the Elasticsearch-Logstash-Kibana stack. I have everything working, but now I need to:
- Set alarms on certain thresholds/events
- Send notifications on alarms
- (desirable) Manage alarms from within Kibana (i.e. alert/acknowledge)
I've read some partial solutions using another tools beside ELK, as Nagios, but I'm wondering what is the industry's "best" approach to this need.
Note: I've already taken a look at X-Pack and seems to be one of the acceptable solutions, but the licencing details and costs are still vague - not publicly available. I've contacted Elastic but need to answer a few questions with data I still don't have.
