What is Elasticsearch instance?


(Kelvin Nyota) #1

I want to know what this Elasticsearch instance is! there is no proper documentation for beginners in Windows, and that is why we are asking so many questions!

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/setup.html

URL of the Elasticsearch instance you want to connect to.

What is this url and Elasticsearch instance? Please provide a sample.

localhost:9200

OK, I will try that.

I have found it, do I need to uncomment it for it to work? Here is what I found

     # The Elasticsearch instance to use for all your queries.
     # elasticsearch.url: "http://localhost:9200"

  INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

The full details are here:

Make sure Elasticsearch is running (download it and doubleclick bin/elasticsearch.bat), then visit http://localhost:5601/ in a browser.

It appears to work after it gives me this error:

  INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

Here is the process:

C:\elasticsearch-2.1.0\bin>service start
 The service 'elasticsearch-service-x86' has been started

 C:\elasticsearch-2.1.0\bin>

Kibana is loading well from the browser, I can tell you am having a great experience.

   http://localhost:5601/

Is Kibana somehow connected to Hawaii?
