Applications are run within containers to make rolling updates easy, boost resiliency, and more. But with container orchestration, logs becomes a moving target as containers are created and destroyed. Container deployments are dynamic, and the Elastic Stack can handle that. In this course, you’ll learn how to use Filebeat and Elasticsearch to monitor logs from Docker containers and Kubernetes.
Note: This course is a module of the Logging specialization.


You’ll also learn how to configure Filebeat to autodiscover and auto-deploy with your environment. After completing this course, you’ll be able to take control of logging in your ever-changing Docker and Kubernetes environment.
