Maarten Smeets 1

Performance tuning usually goes something like followed: a performance problem occurs an experienced person knows what is probably the cause and suggests a specific change baseline performance is determined, the change is applied, and performance is measured again if the performance has improved compared to the baseline, keep the change, […]

Using Elastic Stack, Filebeat and Logstash (for log aggregation)

Marc Lameriks

In a previous article I described how I used ElasticSearch, Filebeat and Kibana, for log aggregation (getting log information available at a centralized location). [https://technology.amis.nl/2019/09/15/using-elastic-stack-filebeat-for-log-aggregation/] In this article I will talk about the installation and use of Filebeat in combination with Logstash (from the Elastic Stack).

Creating a Custom Plugin in Grafana using React

Laura Broekstra 5

Grafana gives you a straightforward way of creating dashboards for monitoring metrics, like status and health of IoT devices. Several types of visualizations are already available when developing the dashboard. If the choices aren’t sufficient, Grafana supports the ability to add custom plugins. In this post I will create a custom plugin in React, which can be used in Grafana, in order to show data in a nested tree table.
