Talk 1: Getting to Kibana 4 – ELK Stack Migration Tips


Woo Hoo!!! Kibana 4 is out.  Let’s get started…..

Not so fast ….

• Oh, I need this version of Elasticsearch Cluster

• How do I run Kibana 3 and Kibana 4 in parallel?

• Oh, all my systems in the Elasticsearch Cluster need to be this version including my Logstash clients

Traversing the migration path from Kibana 3 to Kibana 4 can be tricky, challenging and a little frustrating, but without a doubt it's worth it.  The goal of this presentation will be to review the challenges, provide tips and walk through a migration from a Kibana 3 environment to Kibana 4.
