Configuring Metricbeat


(Erick Kendall) #1

Maybe it's me but the Elastic documentation isn't clear as to what's server and what's client :frowning:

I have installed metricbeat on several clients and they appear to be sending data to Elasticsearch.

But I don't have any dashboards? Do I need to install metricbeat on the Elasticsearch server similar to how I did it on the clients?

After some digging I did find how to setup the dashboard through the clients yaml configuration. I've entered both the Kibana and Elasticsearch URL(s)

Now getting an error

Exiting: Error importing Kibana dashboards: fail to import the dashboards in Kibana: Error importing URL/file: Failed to unzip the archive: /tmp/tmp234608490/x.x.x.x:9200 is not a valid zip file

where x.x.x.x is the IP address in the configuration

What's the command you are trying to run exactly?

Could you please share the output of the following command?

./metricbeat setup -e -d "*"
