Verify Elasticsearch and Kibana after deployment

Verify Elasticsearch and Kibana after deploymentΒΆ

After you deploy Elasticsearch and Kibana, verify that they are up and running using the steps below.

To verify the Elasticsearch cluster:

  1. Log in to one of the log hosts.

  2. Run the following command:

    curl http://log:9200

    Example of the system response:

    curl http://log:9200
      "name" : "log01",
      "cluster_name" : "elasticsearch",
      "cluster_uuid" : "KJM5s5CkTNKGkhd807gcCg",
      "version" : {
        "number" : "2.4.4",
        "build_hash" : "fcbb46dfd45562a9cf00c604b30849a6dec6b017",
        "build_timestamp" : "2017-06-03T11:33:16Z",
        "build_snapshot" : false,
        "lucene_version" : "5.5.2"
      "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

To verify the Kibana dashboard:

  1. Log in to the Salt Master node.

  2. Identify the prx VIP of your MCP cluster:

    salt-call pillar.get _param:openstack_proxy_address
  3. Open a web browser.

  4. Paste the prx VIP and the default port 5601 to the web browser address field. No credentials are required.

    Once you access the Kibana web UI, you must be redirected to the Kibana Logs analytics dashboard.
