Docker: Analysis Using Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana



  • Collect, search and visualize log data with ELK (Elasticsearch 2.3.5, Logstash 2.3.4, Kibana 4.5.4).


I. Setup ELK on localhost.

(1) Obtain the ELK stack

  • sudo docker pull sebp/elk

(2) Run the ELK stack

  • sudo docker run -p 5601:5601 -p 9200:9200 -p 5044:5044 -p 5000:5000 -it –name elk sebp/elk

(3) Check Elasticsearch & Kibana status

    II. Load the data using Elasticsearch (Python dict struct data sent to Elasticsearch(http://localhost:9200/))
    III. Check index or pattern “*” in localhost:5601
    IV. Make sure the table is loaded to Kibana as it is shown below.
    V. Visualize it and create dashboards of choice.
