Logstash

March 18, 2014 2.4k views
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 logstash-forwarder (or any other "log shipper") installed.
