Trying to follow the Getting Started tutorial for the 6.4 stack.
I have followed the instructions as described, except that I configured and used yum for the install rather than download and install the rpm files by hand.
Elasticsearch appears to install correctly.
Kibana installs ok.
metricbeat installs as described.
However, going to kibana nothing works. It does not display anything like the data shown in the getting started document, it complains about no indexes and shows no data.
Following the instructions in the "Add Metrics" link for metricbeat helps, although this does not match reality if you have used something like an rpm to load, since there is no "installation directory". Even after following these steps, kibana doesn't seem to see any data.
I think your getting started document needs work... unless I am missing something.
Found one reason that I missed:
[root@elk kibana]# metricbeat modules enable system
Module system doesn't exist!
This probably has something to do with the instruction to run this from the install directory ... where is the install directory when installed via yum/rpm??
This seems to be one problem:
