I have a python website hosted on digital ocean and ELK stack - Elastic Search, Kibana, Logstash - on AWS. I'm trying to understand how to feed the logs files from my python web app on digital ocean to the ELK stack on AWS:

  • Is it possible to feed them via the internet between different servers?
  • Do you I have to install nginx to be able to see kibana reports?
  • Do I have to install ssl certificates for my AWS stack?
  • How did you end up solving this? – FooBar Feb 2 '18 at 15:04
  • Yes.
  • No.
  • No.

Methinks you might have wanted to ask a more open-ended question.


You can set up a simple reverse proxy in aws with https and basic auth that proxies to elasticsearch, then on your machine with the python app in DO install rsyslog-elasticsearch (if using ubuntu/debian) and configure it to forward logs with the un/pw and url of the es proxy.
