What is AWS Centralized Logging?
The AWS Centralized Logging Solution that lets you aggregate, analyze and view logs from Amazon CloudWatch within a single Kibana dashboard. When you use services from AWS, they generate logs for numerous events, such as for access, configuration changes and billing. Also, web servers, applications and operating systems generate their own logs. Collecting, managing and acting upon all this data can be challenging, and this is where Centralized Logging comes into play.
The solution uses the Amazon Elasticsearch Service in combination with an analytics and visualization platform called Kibana to collect log events from CloudWatch and present them to you within a unified view.
There are three components to Centralized Logging: log ingestion, log indexing and visualization. During log ingestion, the solution gathers data. During log indexing, the solution indexes data for fast retrieval of information. Finally, during visualization, the solution displays data to you in a useful way.
