A basic understanding of Elasticsearch and Logstash is required to make the best use of this book.What you will learnIngest data and start creating visualizations in KibanaFind out how to embed Kibana visualization on web pagesBuild a metrics dashboard in Timelion based on time series dataUse the Graph plugin visualization feature and leverage a graph queryCreate, implement, package, and deploy a new custom pluginIn DetailKibana, an open source data visualization platform, allows you to interact with your data through stunning, powerful graphics. Its simple, browser-based interface enables you to quickly create and share dynamic dashboards that display changes to Elasticsearch queries in real time.In this book, you'll learn how to use the Elastic stack on top of a data architecture to visualize data in real time. All data architectures have different requirements and expectations when it comes to visualizing the data, whether it's logging analytics, metrics, or business analytics, graph analytics, or scaling them as per your business requirements. This book will help you master Elastic visualization tools and adapt them to the context.You will start by understanding how to use the basic visualization features of Kibana 5. Then, you will see how to implement a pure metric analytics architecture and visualize it using Timelion, a very recent and trendy feature of the Elastic stack. You will learn how to correlate data using the brand new Graph visualization and build relationships between documents. Finally, we dig into the setup of a Kibana development environment in order to build a custom Kibana plugin.By the end of this book, you will have all the information you need to take your Elastic stack skills for data visualization to a new level.
