Kibana 5.1.1 is released. It is definitively worth the try.

Docker lets use check technology easily using its docker-compose functionality. Simply starts it with the next following configuration file in order to get a fully functional elastic search 5.1.1 stack.

#COMPOSE ELK5

Note that the kibana version included in the compose file has a few additional visualizers:

  • Two offline maps (Source code here and here)
  • A traffic light system (Source code here)

It also adds the following lines to the kibana.yml (tilemap.options.maxZoom: 18
tilemap.url: http://a.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png info:here) in order to use openstreet map as online map provider and change the maximum zoom level to 18.

And don’t miss the new tag cloud visualizer from elastic.
