I'm trying to setup the elk stack on my machine. I have both elasticsearch and logstash outputs enabled in the filebeat yml config file, and they both seem to be doing fine. When querying the elasticsearch index on /_cat/indices i'm getting filebeat-2017.08.09 with 54000 docs, so there's definitely data there.
When logging into the Kibana UI, under management, no matter how i try, i'm unable to get a match for indices named filebeat-*. Is this a timing issue, a auth issue, is it something else?
I'm deploying the stack locally using docker compose. I've made sure that the kibana elasticsearch host, user and password are set correctly, and i'm not seeing any log errors regarding auth failures. Is the index discovery service suppose to hit elasticseach directly, because i'm not seeing any traffic in that regard. Is there any variable that i can update in the kibana config that would increase the ES index read frequency?
Thanks in advance
the .kibana index seems to only hold one document, which seems to come from xPackMonitoring
