Did you start Logstash with the --setup flag in order to install the Netflow dashboards in Kibana?
bin/logstash --modules netflow --setup -M netflow.var.input.udp.port=NNNN

(venkatesh bandari) #3

it is already started and i see in the discover tab the data but only dashboards are not displayed

(Marius Dragomir) #4

You can get netflow data even without the --setup flag, that flag only installs the dashboards.

(venkatesh bandari) #5 do we need to run that command and stop it or run it in the background

(Marius Dragomir) #6

if you run it just once, it should be enough to get the dashboards set up and keep your command running that just ingests the Netflow data.

(venkatesh bandari) #7

so the command need to run continuously to ingest netflow data.So i stop the command the data shown in the dashboard will be stopped.

is there any other way so that netflow data is seen on the dashboard

iam also getting this error

You can keep running the command like you were running it before, as long as it was run at least once with the setup flag. Logstash has to run to ingest data and it has to run at least once with --setup for the Netflow module dashboards to be installed. After that, the dashboards are there to stay.
