Where can I get Metricbeat sample dashboard for Kibana 5?


I would like to have a dashboard like the image, which I found here https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-sample-dashboards.html

I have metricbeat 5 and it is creating indexes in the format metricbeat-YYYY-MM-DD. How / where can I get / download similar sample dashboard?

Thank you.

Metricbeat ships with a script that will create them for you. You can find the script at /path/to/metricbeat/scripts/import_dashboards and then running ./import-dashboards --es http://my-elasticsearch-node.

There are more options the script supports such as auth, you can get that info by running import-dashboards --help


Hi @jbudz , whats http://my-elasticsearch-node here? I tried;

./import-dashboards --es http://mynode

and got error;

./import-dashboards: No such file or directory

It's the url for your elasticsearch's http endpoint. If you're running it at its default location (localhost:9200), you don't need to specify this.

The other error suggests this isn't being run from the metricbeat scripts directory, is the file available?
