Cannot restart Kibana without reboot


#1

I'm having a problem with Kibana 5.4.0. After a restart I have no problems using Kibana with Elasticsearch. But sometimes Kibana crashes (no logging output...) and then I have problems to get it started again.

If I start Kibana, I'll get the error message that I need the elasticsearch plugin.

./bin/kibana .
log [09:53:38.910] [info][listening] Server running at http://localhost:5601
log [09:53:38.915] [error][status][ui settings] Status changed from uninitialized to red - UI Settings requires the elasticsearch plugin

What is this plugin and why does it work the first time after reboot without anything?

I'm using Red Hat 7.2, and Kibana 5.4.0 and Elasticsearch 5.4.0. Since I'm not the owner of the server it's hard to get it restarted so I need a solution for that problem. I did not find anything useful via web search.

Thank you and regards

It's just elasticsearch. If I try to run Kibana without elasticsearch running, I'll get: [error][status][ui settings] Status changed from uninitialized to red - Elasticsearch plugin is red. Though your error message is not exactly the same, so it may be a different problem you are running into.

Do you have any error output for elasticsearch? Sometimes it takes a bit longer for elasticsearch to start up than Kibana, so I may get error messages like this:

  log   [13:12:39.911] [info][listening] Server running at http://localhost:5601
  log   [13:12:39.912] [error][status][ui settings] Status changed from uninitialized to red - Elasticsearch plugin is red

  log   [13:13:19.879] [warning][admin][elasticsearch] No living connections
  log   [13:13:22.644] [info][status][plugin:elasticsearch@5.4.0] Status changed from red to green - Kibana index ready
  log   [13:13:22.645] [info][status][ui settings] Status changed from red to green - Ready

Can you turn on verbose logging by adding this line to your kibana.yml file: logging.verbose: true?
