Cant access the marvel GUI

monitoring

(Alejandro Gonzalez) #1

Good morning. I wanted to play around with the docker image for elastic search 6.5.1 and installed on a linux container on my windows pc.

I did a postman get on post 9200 and i got the response and the tagline "you know, for search', indicating the docker image worked.
Next I wanted to go to the marvel UI and see my server status, but i don't know to which url to go to.
I read that marvel is now part of x-pack, so i check the container and i got the message "This distribution of elasticsearch contains x-pack by default".

So it seems it is installed, i just dont know where to go.

http://localhost:5601/app/marvel also gives an error.

Any ideas how to install teh GUI from inside the elasticsearch docker image?

Marvel is now called Monitoring and is totally free. Check out https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elastic-stack-overview/6.5/xpack-monitoring.html

Well I gave up on this. The docker image cant start connector D so kibana wont start, so my work around was running kibana on my windows host.
