Kibana Plugins

It isn't always easy to find Kibana plugins, so I wanted to make a list of all of the plugins that I am aware of.

NOTE: Not all plugins will work with all versions of Kibana. The Kibana plugin interfaces are in a state of constant development. Plugin developers should release a new version of their plugin for each new Kibana release as a result.

Denotes plugins that I have personally found to be very useful.

Plugin 5.x 6.x 7.x Description
aggs-flower Visualisation plugin using d3 forced simulation. Major purpose of this plugin was to provide tools for other plugin developments. This plugin therefore has some interesting features like context menu, filters, dynamic d3 behaviour, 3D effects, node repositioning, etc. while the query handling is pretty basic.

Getting Started with the Elastic Stack

If you are new to the Elastic Stack, this video goes beyond a simple default installation of Elasticsearch and Kibana. It discusses real-world best practices for hardware sizing and configuration, providing production-level performance and reliability.


Additionally local SSD storage should be considered as mandatory! For an in-depth look at how different storage options compare, and in particular how bad HDD-based storage is for Elasticsearch (even in multi-drive RAID0 configurations) you should watch this video...
