- on Linux 7.4 running on VirtualBox, which is running on OSX 10.13.4
I've been trying to install elasticsearch and have been having problems. I've been through the basic tutorial on elastic.co, and it gave instructions for installing both Elastic and Kibana. The Elastic install seemed to work without problem.
The Kibana install, however, had problems when installing the recommended x-pack plugin.
It downloads and extracts a bunch of files. It tries to set up some caching. And it sits there forever.
I don't know what it's doing, but it's doing something. It may be spinning its wheels, but it's chewing up the cycles pretty well.
Here's what happens when I run the command as instructed:
$ bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack Attempting to transfer from x-pack Attempting to transfer from https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/kibana-plugins/x-pack/xpack-6.2.4.zip Transferring 264988487 bytes.................... Transfer complete Retrieving metadata from plugin archive Extracting plugin archive Extraction complete Optimizing and caching browser bundles...
And then nothing further is displayed.
I've tried this several times and it always (appears) to act the same. The most recent time I tried, I let it run for almost five hours before I killed it. There was no apparent activity, except that keyboard/mouse response time slowed to almost no response at all.
Has anyone seen similar behavior? Does it really take that long to do the optimization? Is Kibana really necessary to run Elastic?
Thanks for the assistance.
