Load Balance Kibana4


I would like to loadbalance 2 kibana nodes, i am trying to see if this is possible, as i have been attempting to Load Balance two nodes in aws.

to give you a break down of what i have done so far

i have tried using a AWS ELB to point port 80 to port 5601

i have also used nginx to be a reverse proxy infront of kibana and then use the AWS Loadbalancer to point to that

but i can seem to get traffic to get to kibana when i use the AWS Loadbalancer,

so at the moment i am trying to ascertain if this is even possible to do and if it is, has someone done it in a better way then what i have done ?

It should be possible, yes.

Can you elaborate on what the problem is?

Hey Mark

I am trying to load balance 2 Kibana Instances over two AWS EC2 Instances

Now what i have done i configured Apache2 on the servers to Reverse Proxy kibana ( this is to help keep it secure as i will be adding password protection once i get this to work )

here is the reverse proxy config

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName kibana.mysite.com
ServerAdmin admin@mysite.com


ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule .*{REQUEST_URI} [P,QSA]

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/kibana_error.log
    LogLevel warn
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/kibana_access.log combined

if i hit the EC2 Instances directly it works, and i can use kibana

but if i put a AWS load balancer in front of them i just get a blank page, and it eventually give me a message saying ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

i know the issue is now between AWS ELB and Apache2 i just cant work out what

Sorry for the way late reply, but i was away for a while, i found out that
our route table in AWS had some changes which just where not letting
traffic from the load balancer through
