Metricbeat - Can't graph network I/O


#1

Hi there,

I'm not sure what to do with the network stats from metricbeat. As it's an incrementing byte counter there's no way I can see to graph this sensibly in Kibana4 - as far as I know there is no derivative graph type (yet). Also with beta3, there are no sample network vis or dashboards supplied, so I don't really know where to start.

Is the derivative graph coming to Kibana4, or is there some other way to graph the network stats sent by metricbeat?

Thanks

I think what you are looking for is Timelion: https://www.elastic.co/blog/timelion-timeline It is shipped as part of alpha3 in Kibana and has derivates available.

@ruflin I didn't realise you could add Timelion panels to Kibana dashboards, until now. Thanks!
