Kiries - KIbana, RIemann and ElasticSearch

We wanted a point-and-shoot real-time trend analysis dashboard for our Riemann-based cluster monitoring, as well as for other generic time-series data sources. So, we glued our favorite tools together with Clojure.

We include the following versions of the third-party components

Those projects have all done incredible work, and Kiries is just a little glue and some documentation tying them together.

Any clojure dependencies are described in the project.clj.

Check out the User Guide for more details.


WARNING : Kiries will open publicly accessible ports on your host. Read the installation instructions below, or live dangerously

Unpack an archive or checkout the repo and run:


And point your browser at http://localhost:9090/index.html


Unpack the archive, or open up the git repository, and you will see a directory structure like this:

  • config -- configuration files for riemann and ElasticSearch
  • resources/htdocs -- Web documents, including Kibana, and it configuration in kibana/config.js
  • src -- Kiries src files
  • logs -- log files
  • bin -- helper shell scripts
  • lib -- libraries and jars

WARNING : Kiries will open several publicly accessible ports on your host.

  • 9090 -- Webserver, serving up Kibana and docs
  • 9200,9300 -- ElasticSearch HTTP and Native APIs
  • 5555 -- Riemann listeners (tcp and udp)

Read the following and take precautions as you see fit.

By default, Kiries will start up Riemann tcp and udp servers on port 5555. It will index all events it receives into ElasticSearch. To customize this behavior, edit the config/riemann.config file.

Kiries will also start up ElasticSearch listening on the default ports. ES will store it's data in the data directory (relative to where the java runtime was started from. To customize the ES behavior, edit the config/elasticsearch.yml file. If you customize the http host and port, be sure to update the Riemann and Kibana configurations.

Kibana is a series of HTML and Javascript files served up from htdocs and it's configuration is in htdocs/kibana/config.js. We serve up Kibana using an internal webserver, whose default port is 9090 and will listen on all interfaces.


bin/kiries   # call with -? for cmd line args

And point your browser at http://localhost:9090/index.html

You can’t perform that action at this time.
