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.
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.
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... :)
