alternative (better) logstash frontend
- applications ›
This charm provides kibana from (http://kibana.org/). Kibana is a search frontend for logstash.
Using This Charm
using this charm :
juju deploy kibana juju expose kibana
not much use on its own ... you'll probably want the full stack
juju deploy elasticsearch juju deploy logstash-indexer juju add-relation logstash-indexer elasticsearch:cluster juju deploy kibana juju add-relation kibana elasticsearch juju expose kibana
browse to http://ip-address to begin searching.
Kibana source tarball will be downloaded and verified according to the configured values in 'kibana_source' and 'kibana_source_checksum', which default to::
It will, obviously, require internet access on deployed nodes.
This behavior can be bypassed by providing
payload prior deployment. The given payload will be used, without any
checksum verification, and unpacked to /srv/kibana4.
listens only on localhost:5601. uses rinetd to redirect ip-addr:80 to localhost:5601. This should allow for haproxy etc to be used in front. Could configure apache reverse proxy in front if you want SSL / .htaccess
supports multiple ES servers in cluster. This should help with balancing the load on ES and dealing with failure.
see logstash-indexer charm's README.md file for usage examples.
Deploy / Add Dashboards
The Kibana charm ships with a action to deploy dashboards into the Kibana instance. You will however, have to have them loaded into the charm before the user deploys it, which means a pull request to the upstream charm to include you're awesome dashboard for everyone!
For example, to deploy the included 'beats' dashboard with < Juju 2.0:
juju action do kibana/0 load-dashboard dashboard=beats
For 2.0 +
juju run-action kibana/0 load-dashboard dashboard=beats
This invokes the action, which in turn looks in the 'dashboards' directory for
Which is the repository layout adopted by Elasticsearch for their own dashboards.
to include your own, simply make a directory, a mirror the launch.sh script to
curl to your elasticsearch instance (by default: localhost:9200 will work as its
proxying the connection to your ES cluster) and it will declare any indexes
as well as load any dashboard JSON definitions you include. For more information
Custom dashboards can be added by uploading them via
juju scp my-dashboard/ kibana/0:dashboards/
- (string) Space-separated list of Elasticsearch visualization dashboards to load on deployment. Dashboards must exist in 'dashboards' directory and contain a load.sh script to populate into Elasticsearch. The only dashboard currently supported out-of-the-box is "beats".
- (string) URL to download the source for kibana
- (string) the sha1sum of the kibana_source
- (string) The url path of kibana. This is required if kibana is proxied at a non root path. e.g. http://example.com/kibana/
- (int) The tcp port on which nginx will listen.
