Version 6.3 is out and it includes a lot cool new features.
Elastic Search released the version 6.1 of its stack, and once again there are a tons of good new things but this is once again a disappointment for developers writing plugins for Kibana. Once again the compatibility is broken and the code has to be changed. This is painful and I stopped writing plugins for it. I will probably still port the traffic lights plugin for it. (I already have 3 different versions of it, one per Elastic flavour)
Elastic search released the latest version of its stack. There are of course a lot of cool new things, but we also feel that they, one step after the other push people to a licence model. I have no problem with that but it makes the life of people that want to keep a licence free stack more difficult.
In the part 1, we saw how to display the number of docs and their sizes per node. In the real life, it helps but we need more than that.
Docker lets you check the full elastic 5 stack in a few seconds. The only thing required is a docker-compose file that includes and links the appropriate containers together.
