I am trying to run Kibana 4.4.1 on an IBM Bluemix PaaS as a nodejs application. In my implementation, i use cloudfoundry to connect to the PaaS cloud.
I was able to run Kibana 4.1.1 on PaaS using the following steps
> Download Kibana from here to your personal desktop: > https://download.elastic.co/kibana/kibana/kibana-4.1.1-windows.zip > Extract the files using WinZip and navigate to /src/config/index.js > Modify the following line from: > // Set defaults for config file stuff > kibana.port = kibana.port || 5601; > To the following: > kibana.port = process.env.PORT || 5601; > Once the change has been made save the file. > Navigate to the folder /src/ and create a new file called manifest.yml. The contents of this file should be the following: > --- > applications: > - name: %name% > host: %name% > memory: %memory% > domain: asdy.gfbryb..mybluemix.net > instances: 1 > command: node ./bin/kibana.js > env: > NODE_ENV: production > CONFIG_PATH: ./config/kibana.yml > This file will tell Blue Mix how to run this application once uploaded. The %name% should be the same as the application name within Blue Mix. For %memory% use an increment of 128M, 256M, 512M. > Navigate to the folder /src/config/ and open the file kibana.yml. Add the following lines to the end of the file: > bundled_plugin_ids: > - plugins/dashboard/index > - plugins/discover/index > - plugins/doc/index > - plugins/kibana/index > - plugins/markdown_vis/index > - plugins/metric_vis/index > - plugins/settings/index > - plugins/table_vis/index > - plugins/vis_types/index > - plugins/visualize/index > In the same file we need to update the variable “elasticsearch_url” to point to the virtual machine’s IP: > elasticsearch_url: "http://<Virtual Machine IP>:9200" > Save the file when finished. > Download the Cloud Foundary Command Line Interface (CF CLI) here: > https://github.com/cloudfoundry/cli/releases > Once CF CLI has been installed follow the steps from the webpage we need to connect to Blue Mix. Open up command prompt on your computer by navigating to Start -> Run and typing in “CMD”: > > To connect to Blue Mix use the command “cf api https://api.ng.bluemix.net”: > > Log in to Blue Mix “cf login –u user_name –o org_name –s space_name”: > > User_name is your login for Blue Mix > Org_name is the organization that will house the application(s) > Space_name is the folder which the application will be stored > To upload the application use the command cf push in the following syntax “cf push appname –m 512m” > > When pushing the application make sure the directory is the /src/ folder of kibana.
but these steps dont work for Kibana 4.4.1 as the directory structure is completely different. I tried to push Kibana to PaaS by moving to the src folder and typing the
cf push command, but it fails to upload.
Has anyone tried to do this?
