qnib/elk comes now with kibana4 (alongside kibana3)
Since I was ask on hub.docker.com if my qnib/elk image is going to provide kibana4 in the near future I figured it would be worth to blog about it.
The image in question is quite nice for trying the ELK stack out and I take some pride in stating that it's the number 2 image popping up if you search for 'elasticsearch' (and rank by stars). :)
For those of you who just want to play around with a ELK-stack in one image I just ~~created a kibana4-version (qnib/elk:kibana4).~~ added kibana4 into the qnib/elk image.
To start is without external images, just fetch the elk
docker-compose file and off you go.
$ mkdir -p mystack; cd mystack/ $ curl -Lso docker-compose.yml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ChristianKniep/docker-elk/master/docker-compose.yml $ compose up -d Creating mystack_elk_1...
Afterwards consul will provide insides on which service is up'n'running...
Once everything is green the world is open to be explored. :)
First a log message should be pushed, otherwise the
logstash index won't be created and there is nothing to look at.
Kibana3 shows up by reaching out to
Kibana4 is available underneath
But (and that is why I was reluctant so far), somehow it seems to be impossible to preconfigure the settings. Maybe that had changed, but I couldn't find a file based way of doing so.
Enjoy! Even though YMMV... :)
