title: Altoros Log Search for PCF
owner: Partners
---
Altoros Log Search for PCF is a flexible combination of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana (ELK)
that provides log aggregation and parsing algorithms for PCF operators and developers.
The solution provides shared and on-demand service plans. PCF operators can create a
Log Search cluster, where access will be shared within a group of developers.
With on-demand service plan, developers get the possibility to create Log Search cluster
and bind it to some applications, which should be monitored.
