Description

alternative (better) logstash frontend

Overview

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:rest
juju expose kibana

browse to http://ip-address to begin searching.

Configuration

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

Other

  • 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.
