A couple of you asked how I created the time lapse videos visualizing
connection attempts to my router. I used the new geoip2 parser of syslog-ng
3.11, Elasticsearch for storage, Kibana for showing the map and OpenShot to
convert screenshots into a movie.

Read the details from my blog at

I'm not really sure if it has any practical use, but definitely a nice eye
candy which can raise attention towards security of your network.

Do you have any other suggestions for log data to be visualized in a
similar way?
