Elastic search stats to Kibana


(Dimitris) #1

Hello

I have a working elastic search on my server and i was checking to use Kibana for search stats but i am not sure if i must use also logstash to get this work...

Any tutorials?

Thank you

You do not need logstash unless you want to use logstash for ingestion of event data.
We have beats which also send event data to Elasticsearch.

See here for a webinar on kibana. https://www.elastic.co/webinars/getting-started-kibana

You will need to PUT some data into Elasticsearch before you can visually explore it, yes.

Thanks for your reply !

I don't need event data at the moment so i will go ahead with the elastic search and kibana direct integration...

Any sample or info for the PUT data that i will need to provide?
