Deploy Kibana 4.1.1 in a VPS


(fjemli) #1

I m using Kibana 4.1.1, i used to run it manually ./bin/kibana Now I want to deploy it in production in a VPS running ubuntu 14.04.

  • How can I send my dashboards to the VPS instance and do not recreate them?

  • How can I run Kibana as a background deamon?

Notice: I know that recent Kibana versions comes with .deb packages but I m using Kibana 4.1.1 cause I m using ES 1.7 and I can't change my ES version for the moment.

Hi,

How can I send my dashboards to the VPS instance and do not recreate them?

In the Kibana instance where you have already created your dashboards, go to Settings > Objects, then click the Export button at the top. This will result in a JSON file being saved to your computer.

Then go to the Kibana instance in production, Settings > Objects, and click the Import button at the top to import the file you saved earlier.

How can I run Kibana as a background deamon?

Yeah, unfortunately since there are no system packages for Kibana 4.1.1, you'll have to use something like daemontools, or daemonize or upstart to daemonize Kibana yourself.
