Log visualizations help identify, track and predict important events and trends on HPCC Systems clusters, by spotting interesting patterns and giving you visual clues which are easier to interpret than reading through the log file itself. Starting in HPCC Systems 8.0.0, a mechanism will be provided to deploy a lightweight Elastic Stack instance as a simple solution for the logs on-cloud processing challenges. In this blog, Rodrigo Pastrana walks through how to get started, view the logs, apply filter conditions and configure the Elastic Stack components.
