Dashboards and indices lost


(Leo) #1

Periodically Kibana or Logstash loses its memory.

Even though I have created and saved dashboards I receive the following message:

Looks like you don’t have any dashboards. Let’s create some!

Similarly with indices and visualizations - none are found.

The data is still intact and once the index is recreated, everything works fine.

I previously installed and removed X-Pack. Is it possible that there is still something that needs cleaning up?

http://127.0.0.1:9200/_cat/indices/ reveals the following (snipped):

If the .kibana index (where visualisation config is stored) was deleted or removed due to issues with the data path, then this is one scenario that would reset your visualisations.

Thanks.
Bit silly really - I had a cron job deleting indices older than 7 days. It never occurred to me that it would also be deleting the .kibana index.

I have now included the kibana filter in the curator config.

Glad to see you’ve solved it. :slight_smile:
