    EFK Setup For Bagisto-A standardized logging and monitoring stack

    Updated 3 December 2020


    Our EFK Setup for Bagisto plan ( provides the implementation of Elasticsearch, Fluentd, and Kibana into Bagisto application as a standardized logging and monitoring stack. Therefore, this framework enhances the code’s quality and allows users to access and analyze log data in real-time, and helps to identify bugs.

    Besides this, under this stack, Fluentd gathers log data from multiple sources located in each cluster’s pods. After that, the log data is transformed and distributed to the backend of Elasticsearch. In Elasticsearch, the data is first processed and then transferred to Kibana, where the data is visualized. Therefore, this stack provides a robust logging and monitoring system, that facilitates interactive, user- friendly, and unified logging, visualization, and much more.


    • One-time set-up installation of Elastic Search, Fluentd, and Kibana.
    • Detailed Webserver (Apache) access and error logs monitoring with the facility of filter logs on the basis of the apache methods counts, apache agents, paths, IP Addresses, etc.
    • Bagisto logs detailed monitoring and facility of quick reviewing by filtering logs on the basis of the log levels.
    • Dashboard creation for quick access.
    • User authentication management interface using Kibana plugin.
    • Visualize all the generated logs stored in one place.

    Prerequisites For EFK setup for Bagisto Plan

    1.) Fluentd (or TD-agent) gets installed on the server where Bagisto logs and Web server logs are present. Bagisto application is running on one server which will act as a forwarder and Elastic search and kibana are installed on second server which will act as a log aggregator, the TD-agent will be installed on both servers that collects the logs from the forwarder and forward them to the aggregator and pushes them to the Kibana.

    2.) Elastic search and kibana will be installed on a different server provided by the customer with the following configurations –

    • A scalable Ubuntu server for Elasticsearch – Kibana setup with 4-6 GB RAM
    • 2-4 CPU cores.
    • Disk storage space should be at least 30-50 GB with the scope of upgradation if needed.
