Topbeat Dashboard shows strange numbers in RC1


(Owulff) #1

Hi all

I've upgraded to RC1. I updated the template, deleted old indexes and re-created the index pattern in Kibana. Finally I updated the Beats dashboard.

I liked to see % for filesystem usage and GB, MB etc in Beta 4 but it's not there anymore in RC1.

Further, I think the visualized data doesn't show the reality. I've attached a screenshot and a one topbeat message which shows that the memory usage is close to 100% (It's only one message but it's not a peak it constantly consumes almost 100% memory

What am I missing?

What ES and Kibana versions are you using?

The %, MB, GB, etc. are done via field formatters in Kibana, and they should be configured automatically when you load the beats-dashboards. Can you check the index/fields settings in Kibana? This is how it looks for me:

My mistake. I didn't notice that you upload the index pattern as well in the script. I've re-created that without the format :wink:

Nevertheless, I still see strange numbers in the dashboards.

Memory usage is close to 100% (which is correct based on the uutput of top). Nevertheless, the visualization "Memory per process" it goes up to 25% only. Also "top ten memory consumers" doesn't make too much sense if memory usage is at almost 100%.
