Elastic Observability Engineer (Pt 1) - Virtual

Elastic Observability Engineer (Pt 1) - Virtual


This is Part 1 of a two-part, instructor-led course series that provides a strong foundation on using the Elastic Stack to implement system observability.


In the two parts of this course, you will learn how to collect logs, metrics, and APM data, and then ship them to a single datastore — Elasticsearch. You will also learn how unified observability data can be made even more actionable through machine learning and alerting, as well as easier to correlate data across different sources. Using Kibana, you will also explore how to visualize your observability data through an intuitive user interface. After completing this course, you will be ready to take Elastic Observability Engineer - Part 2.
