Looks like very old versions... Why did you choose to install that instead of 6.1.2?

Thanks for reply , i have updated elastcsreach version from 4.2 to 6.x , and kibana to 5,
still am stuck in Create index pattern, please check the screenshot .

Looks like a Kibana 6, no?

Did you index anything?

What gives GET _cat/indices?v

currently i did not index anything , how can i do index?, basically am in new in ELK
curl -I http://localhost:5601/status
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
kbn-name: kibana
kbn-version: 6.1.2
cache-control: no-cache
Date: Wed, 24 Jan 2018 17:00:51 GMT
Connection: keep-alive

You can go in the developer Console in Kibana and do:

PUT test/doc/1
  "message": "Elasticsearch is cool"
GET test/_search?q=cool

May be read

And specifically


yes i added default index in elasticsreach using below url reference, and kibana now working fine

But how can i get my filebeate client logs ??

Did you read https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/index.html ?
