Nothing showing in Kibana


My server ran out of space - duh. so I used the curator to remove anything older than 45 days and now I have plenty of free space and still indices newer than 45 days.

The problem is when I log into kibana - nothing is showing up - not the old indices and nothing new from the machines that are connected.

What is the best way to troubleshoot this?




That is strange. Did you click refresh on your index patterns in Kibana?


Yes I have – I actually did find some old information, but no new information I did try to restart the winlogbeat service on a server to see if that helped but nothing yet.

Hi Wil,

Can you do _cat/indices on your ES and paste what you see here? Just trying to make sure your data is in ES.



Here you go. No new indices being created.
