I am trying to use Kibana 4.1 (with Elasticsearch 1.7.2) for initial 100k+ dataset of LARGE objects (900+ fields)
for visualization and analysis of data.
Here is my experiences so far
[Discover] step in kibana right after click is horrendous slow as it tries to show 900+ fields of "first"? objects.
Is there any way to disable such search right after click to [Discover]?
In [Discover] and [Visualiize] steps left side bar is too narrow. Can it be made resizeable and remember that setting?
We have a complex/nested JSON structure and looking through all fields in [Discover] is very inconvenient. Any form of field search, etc. would be usable.
Is there any way for all visualization on dashboard to export resulting (new) datasets, i.e. aggregate data into another elasticsearch indice? Perhaps in real time?
On data load Elasticsearch locks field type to first found. For example room number - if first incoming value is 1 it will become number. Afterwards all future non-numeric values are invalid for example - 1a (perfectly valid for room number)
Is there any way to override this? This question is more specific to Elasticsearch I suppose.
