Join Ben Sullins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Elasticsearch Essential Training.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, I recommend downloading them and making them available in somewhere easy to find, like your desktop, as I've done here. Inside of the Exercise Files folder, we have two different folders. We have our data, which has a couple different files that we'll be using, but that data is also available publicly online, and I'll show you where and when you need that later on. And then we have the scripts. These are the code samples that we're going to actually be running inside of our Elasticsearch cluster, and, inside of them, are all the commands necessary.
But I will be going through them bit by bit, so you don't necessarily need them, they're just a good point of reference, or if you don't feel like typing out every single line of code in the demos of this course.
In this course, join Ben Sullins as he dives into the inner workings of Elasticsearch combined with Kibana. Ben provides an overview of the architecture, and then goes over the different deployment methods, and how to best structure your data. From there, he demonstrates how to query data, and how to work with Kibana to present your insights.
