We are trying to develop a PoC for Elastic on Azure Cloud
We installed the Elastic template from Azure Marketplace, selected 3 nodes and now we have following configuration:
1 Kibana VM
3 Data VM
3 Master VM
What we can do so far:
- Connect and log in to Kibana (create simple index pattern from console)
- Connect to VMs via bash ssh
What is still open and we desperately look for clear documentation:
On which VM runs logstash?
How to start logstash?
Where to store the config files (for logstash but also if using jdbc plugin)?
Installation of Kibana plugins: when trying to install for example https://github.com/Nico-DF/kibana-plugin-traffic-sg I always get 'operation not permitted' even if I am logged in as the owner of the directory
Is it impossible to install extra plugins on VMs?
Installation of ES plugings like like https://github.com/Azure/azure-diagnostics-tools/tree/master/Logstash/logstash-input-azurewadtable or https://github.com/Azure/azure-diagnostics-tools/tree/master/Logstash/logstash-input-azureblob
On which VM it should be installed? Master-0 I assume?
But then under which directory?
Currently the documentation I can find for setting ELK on Azure is mostly
But all these are not giving us answers.
Can anyone direct us to a more comprehensive (for dummies) guidelines/tutorial Or at least reply to our questions?
