Metricbeat does not install dashboards when running setup


(Shanim) #1

Metricbeat 6.2.3 reports a failure when attempting to install the kibana dashboards as the command expects the kibana/6 folder to be in the bin folder and not in the /usr/share/metricbeat/kibana folder.

@shanim Have you installed Metricbeat via a package(deb/rpm) or from the tar/gz?


(Shanim) #3

Metricbeat was installed with a package, i.e. the .rpm.

The setup works fine if we set setup.dashboards.enabled: true in metricbeat.yml, but we prefer running the CLI command only once rather than have metricbeat attempt a load every time it is started.


(Pier-Hugues Pellerin) #4

I think you are running the binary directly we are providing a shell shims that take care of some configuration.

Can you just execute metricbeat -setup -e ?


(Shanim) #5

We had tried that and it failed to run as it was unable to find the metricbeat.yml file


(Pier-Hugues Pellerin) #6

But adding -c your config to the metricbeat invocatio, should work?


(Shanim) #7

The above output used -c <config file location based on the rpm's SPEC file>.

The metricbeat rpm installs metricbeat and puts the configuration file in /etc/metricbeat folder similar to the elasticsearch.yml, kibana.yml and logstash.yml that are stored in /etc/<application>


(Shanim) #8

Any other thoughts on this issue?
