How to use Kibana 4 with Logsene Log Management

Did you know that Logsene provides a complete ELK Stack; i.e., a complete Log management, analytics, exploration, and visualization solution? Logsene currently supports Kibana 3 with complete Kibana 4 support about to be released soon.

Can’t wait to use Kibana 4 with Logsene? No problem – part of the integration is already done and we’ve prepared instructions to run your own Kibana 4 with Logsene:

  • Open Kibana 4 configuration file config/kibana.yml and add Logsene server and Kibana-Index:
    elasticsearch_url: “https://logsene-receiver.sematext.com”
    kibana_index: “LOGSENE_TOKEN_kibana
  • Start Kibana 4 (./bin/kibana) and open the web browser http://localhost:5601 – Kibana 4 asks for an index pattern. Here you need to enter the Logsene token and a daily date pattern separated by an underscore:
    [YOUR-LOGSENE-TOKEN_]YYYY-MM-DD
  • Enter Kibana Index-PatternNow you are ready to set up your visualizations and dashboards in Kibana 4:
Kibana4-Logsene-Syslog
Kibana 4 Dashboard for data stored in Logsene
