Kibana4: geo_point

(Joydeep Ghosh) #1


I am trying to use geoip, it does the indexing properly but when i see in Kibana4 i get the following error:
No Compatible Fields: The "xxxx" index pattern does not contain any of the following field types: geo_point

I have tried various things which are commented below, but not able to load the latitude & longitude
geoip {
source => "c-ip"
target => "geoip"
#add_tag => [ "iis-geoip" ]
#add_field => [ "[location][lat]", "%{[geoip][longitude]}" ]
#add_field => [ "[location][lon]", "%{[geoip][latitude]}" ]

Please let me know how this can be resolved.

first, your geoip configuration should include a path to geoip database ... something like this:

geoip {
    source => "c-ip"
    target => "geoip"
    database => "/etc/logstash/GeoLiteCity.dat"
    add_field => [ "[geoip][coordinates]", "%{[geoip][longitude]}" ]
    add_field => [ "[geoip][coordinates]", "%{[geoip][latitude]}" ]
  mutate {
    convert => [ "[geoip][coordinates]", "float"]

also its possible that fields dont have the right mappings ... you can check this with:

curl host:9200/INDEXNAME/_mapping

please let me know if this helps. if it doesnt can you provide your full config file and the output of above command (mappings)

You don't need this unless you have changed the default path.

But your mappings commends are spot on, it'd be good to check them.
