Kibana 4.4.0-snapshot

Build Status

Kibana is an open source (Apache Licensed), browser based analytics and search dashboard for Elasticsearch. Kibana is a snap to setup and start using. Kibana strives to be easy to get started with, while also being flexible and powerful, just like Elasticsearch.


  • Elasticsearch version 2.1.0 or later
  • Kibana binary package


Quick Start

You're up and running! Fantastic! Kibana is now running on port 5601, so point your browser at

The first screen you arrive at will ask you to configure an index pattern. An index pattern describes to Kibana how to access your data. We make the guess that you're working with log data, and we hope (because it's awesome) that you're working with Logstash. By default, we fill in logstash-* as your index pattern, thus the only thing you need to do is select which field contains the timestamp you'd like to use. Kibana reads your Elasticsearch mapping to find your time fields - select one from the list and hit Create.

Congratulations, you have an index pattern! You should now be looking at a paginated list of the fields in your index or indices, as well as some informative data about them. Kibana has automatically set this new index pattern as your default index pattern. If you'd like to know more about index patterns, pop into to the Settings section of the documentation.

Did you know: Both indices and indexes are acceptable plural forms of the word index. Knowledge is power.

Now that you've configured an index pattern, you're ready to hop over to the Discover screen and try out a few searches. Click on Discover in the navigation bar at the top of the screen.

Snapshot Builds

For the daring, snapshot builds are available. These builds are created after each commit to the master branch, and therefore are not something you should run in production.
