How To Map User Location with GeoIP and ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) Introduction IP Geolocation, the process used to determine the physical location of an IP address, can be leveraged for a variety of purposes, such as content personalization and traffic analysis.

How To Map User Location with GeoIP and ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana)

Traffic analysis by geolocation can provide invaluable insight into your user base as it allows you to easily see where they users are coming from, which can help you make informed decisions about the ideal geographical location(s) of your application servers and who your current audience is. In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a visual geo-mapping of the IP addresses of your application's users, by using a GeoIP database with Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana.

Here's a short explanation of how it all works. Logstash uses a GeoIP database to convert IP addresses into latitude and longitude coordinate pair, i.e. the approximate physical location of an IP address. Let's take a look at the prerequisites now. Run multiple Redis servers on Ubuntu - makandropedia. Installing Redis on Debian as a Service. If you’d like to have the most recent version of Redis installed on your Debian machine, follow along with this guide.

Installing Redis on Debian as a Service

Unfortunately, the process of installing it is not as easy as `sudo apt-get install redis`, which you probably already knew since you’re reading this. The current version of Redis, at the time of me writing this, is 2.6.13. Go to the website and copy the download link and be sure to change the version in the URL below: # Install the required tools to build the source sudo apt-get install build-essential # Download and extract the files wget tar -xzf redis-2.6.13.tar.gz cd redis-2.6.13 # Compile make install Now that you’ve got it “installed”, you’re going to want to make it a Debian service (so that it can run on startup, and you can use commands like `sudo service redis start`): Next, you’ll want to edit the configuration script.
