Kibana version 4.1.2 health check


(Anna) #1

I'm new to Kibana and Elastic search, can anyone please tell me how can I health check Kibana version 4.1.2

The answer depends on how deep you want the health check to be. Should it just confirm that Kibana is running? Make an HTTP request against port 5601 or however you've exposed Kibana to the outside world. Or do you want to make sure it can serve e.g. dashboards? That might be harder, but try making an HTTP request for a discover or dashboard URL. I'm not sure if such URLs require any cookies or similar to be set first.

I'm looking for a similar command like the below, but sadly 4.1.2 version doesn't work like this.

Yeah Status page is the new addition from kibana 4.2 onward.
