The field of analytics, the process of analysing data to visualise meaningful patterns and trends, has become increasingly important in scientific computing as the volume and variety of data available to process has significantly increased. There is now ongoing work in the High Energy Physics (HEP) community in this area, for example in the augmentation of systems management at WLCG computing sites. We report on work evaluating the feasibility of distributed site-oriented analytics using the Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana software stack and demonstrate functionality by the application of two workflows that give greater insight into site operations.
