Elkwin is an ELK stack implementation for Windows systems. It is a packaging of Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana and Java Server JRE, to provide a standalone solution ready to use for searching, analyzing and visualization of almost any type of structured and unstructured data in real time.
Elasticsearch is a Lucene-based search server, providing a distributed and multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a RESTful web interface and schema-free JSON documents. Logstash is an open source tool for collecting, parsing, and storing logs for future use. Kibana is a web interface that can be used to search and view the logs that Logstash has indexed. Both of these tools are based on Elasticsearch.
