Too Long; Didn't Read

Cloudwatch is an AWS service that allows storage and monitoring of your application logs from an array of AWS services. Sometimes we might need to deeply analyse our logs, not only to spot errors but to find insights into our application. This is where an ELK stack can outperform Cloudwatch. In this tutorial, we will export our logs from Cloudwatch into our ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) stack step by step. For ease I will perform all steps through the AWS console, however, everything can be completed using the command line interface.
