Hey guys, just a quick question:

How exactly do I tie Logstash together with my droplets?

I’m just a bit confused on how the whole logging system is supposed to work.

Do I install Logstash on all my droplets and then point them at my elasticsearch droplet? Then install kibana on the http-server droplet and point it at my elasticsearch droplet?

Logstash and kibana should be installed on one server only. The rest of the servers should have <a href=“”>logstash-forwarder</a> (or any other “log shipper”) installed.
