Logstash 6.3.0 Upgrade

(Vam Pikmin) #1

After upgrading elasticsearch logstash and kibana to 6.3.0 I have two new tabs in Kibana
Metric and APM
I've enabled the Metric and now I have stats for es and kibana, however logstash stats are not in there.
From what I can see I need to enable the xpack in the logstash.yml?

I tried looking for where the xpack might be installed, there's nothing related to xpack in elasticsearch plugins or kibana plugins, however I'm getting stats for those two.

Is the xpack plugin a seperate install for all three (logstash, es and kibana)
Does it get installed automatically with version 6.3.0?

6.3.0 of the stack includes X-Pack and a Basic license enabled by default.

You just need to configure the settings in logstash.yml to send the Monitoring to Elasticsearch.

Thanks warkolm

Where does it install the xpack on Ubuntu 16.04 server?
Just wondering, since it's a plugin yes?

/usr/share/logstash/plugins as per https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/6.3/dir-layout.html#deb-layout

Thanks again for that. How did I miss it:
:/usr/share/logstash# ls -lh
drwxrwxr-x 10 logstash logstash 4.0K Jun 18 11:15 x-pack
