This article will go through the steps of monitoring a Linux server with Elasticsearch, Beats and Kibana. this  article  should  work in all Linux Systems.  its  quit short but  let   u  know  the basics of the installations

Download and unpack the following to the installation directory (i.e. /opt/elasticsearch)

Elasticsearch
Kibana
Metricbeat

By default Elasticsearch will run op port 9200 for indexing the data, and Kibana will run on port 5601. For this example we will leave everything as default.

When using the default settings, that is all which is needed. Now we are ready to start.
Elasticsearch
/path/to/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch &

Kibana
/path/to/kibana/bin/kibana &

Metricbeat
cd /path/to/metricbeat
./metricbeat &

Now further configuration can be done in the Kibana portal. Open the following url in your browser of choice http://localhost:5601 (assuming everything is installed locally). On this page the index and timestamp field needs to be specified.

kibana_landingpage

The index can be specified as metricbeat-* and the default timestamp field @timestamp and press Create.

metricbeat_kibana

On the Discover tab the incoming data should now be visible:

kibana_data
