We use Elasticsearch with Kibana to aggregate logs from Kubernetes and our customers’ applications. Today this stack got upgraded to
6.3, bringing several improvements and bug fixes.
On the Elasticsearch side this mainly fixes a bug we’ve encountered where nodes could get stuck in a flushing loop.
This update brings also a couple of Kibana improvements:
- Experimental autocomplete in the query bar: Click
Optionson the right of the query bar to enable
- Kibana now keeps track of your recently viewed items so that you can easily get back to them
- There is now an Index Management UI: This allows for configuring index settings and mappings from the dashboard, which comes in handy when aggregating logs from multiple sources.
And much more!
