Kibana Visualization Beginner To Pro (ELK & ElasticSearch)



The primary objective of this course is to help students and beginners to learn all the various GUI options of Kibana .

In this course, you will learn :

  • How to create and read advanced graphs and charts with Kibana Visualizations
  • How to install Kibana
  • How to create and manage Kibana index patterns
  • ELK stack fundamentals
  • How to use Kibana Search Filters to get require data
  • How to use Kibana Visualizations and to create dashboards

You will also get an overview of how to interact with Elasticsearch by using Console and how to use Timelion to do time series analysis of data.

In addition to this, I have added a separate section of an Elasticsearch which helps students to understand basics of an Elasticsearch such as its features, Terms and Aggregations along with its Installation procedure.

To help students for understanding how the data indexing is happened in Elasticsearch, I have added lecture which contain overview of preconfigured Logstash configuration file.

Along with theory part, I have covered practical stuffs performed in the demo machine so that students can try out and understand various course topics better.



Kibana is data exploration and analytics tool of ELK stack. ELK stack is Log Management Platform and a collection of three open-source products Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana. All three products are maintained by Elastic Company Company.

Elasticsearch is a NoSQL database; Logstash is a log pipeline tool used to export normalized data to Elasticsearch and Kibana is a visualization layer that works on the top of Elasticsearch.

Kibana seamlessly integrates with Elasticsearch and provides very effective Visualizations options such as charts, maps, data tables, metric etc. to visualize data. It can be used as handy web interface to setup various business use cases such as Logs and Time series analysis of data, Application monitoring, Business intelligence, Anomaly Detection, Operations intelligence etc.

Data indexing is done by Elasticsearch itself and through Kibana you can visualize it.

Even if you have multiple indices in your single Elasticsearch instance, Kibana can work with them seamlessly.



1. Powerful Visualization Capabilities:
Kibana is a powerful visualisation tool that is integrated with Elasticsearch and allows you to create meaningful graphs and charts by making full use of Elasticsearch’s aggregation functionality. By using Kibana Visualizations, it will be very easier for you to lookup connections and correlations between data. Furthermore, you can create Dashboards to put all required visualizations at once to perform statistical analysis of data.

2. Time Series Analysis of Data and Development Tools :
You can use Timelion to perform time series analysis on your Elasticsearch data. You can use its powerful and simple functions to search and visualize data.
By using development tools, you can directly interact with Elasticsearch through its powerful but simple REST API and process indexed data.
3. Huge Demand:
ELK stack is a technology through which you can setup variety of use cases of data mining such as log analytics, monitoring systems activity, anomaly detection etc. Due to its various capabilities, there is high demand for log analysis for each service and find where problem happens.



Will it be required having prior knowledge of Elasticsearch to enroll in this course?
No. this course covers a separate section of Elasticsearch which contains basic overview and some important fundamentals of Elasticsearch.
