Kibana is a free and open user interface that lets you visualize your Elasticsearch data and navigate the Elastic Stack. Do anything from tracking query load to understanding the way requests flow through your apps.



A picture’s worth a thousand log lines

Kibana gives you the freedom to select the way you give shape to your data. With its interactive visualizations, start with one question and see where it leads you.

Kibana core ships with the classics: histograms, line graphs, pie charts, sunbursts, and more. And, of course, you can search across all of your documents.


Survey your data landscape with Discover

Move quickly from ingest to analysis with Discover’s data exploration tools. Go from bird’s-eye view for strategic data discovery – to worm’s-eye view in a few clicks to detect anomalies and troubleshoot issues. Seeing more of your documents in one place means you can easily find the information you need, AND slice and dice your data – however you please. See how insight-driven action fueled by data discovery propels you ahead of the competition. That’s a winning combination.


Build visualizations simply and intuitively

Start exploring even if you’re not sure where you’re headed. Drag and drop fields, and see immediate previews as your data takes shape. Would that look better as a bar chart? Based on your field selection, smart suggestions in Kibana Lens guide you towards visualizations that most effectively communicate your data. Spot an interesting trend that spurs another idea? No problem. Switch data sources on the fly for ad hoc analysis that makes it simple to follow your instincts and build out dashboards to continue monitoring. And it’s free and open.


Dashboards that drive insight and action

Rapidly create dashboards that pull together charts, maps, and filters to display the full picture of your data. Build customized dashboard-to-dashboard drilldowns that enable deeper analysis. Move from insight to action by enabling users to move directly from a Kibana dashboard to any web application or URL.

Build alerts that trigger custom actions

Keep critical changes on your radar to avoid crisis scenarios. Create alerts that use index- and metric-based thresholds to send emails, create Slack notifications, activate PagerDuty workflows, or any number of other third party integrations. Define unique alerts from within specific apps like SIEM, APM, Uptime, or Metrics and monitor them holistically in the Management tab.


Get creative with Canvas in Kibana

Go beyond the grid. Infuse your brand and style into the story of your data with the logos, colors, and design elements that are unique to you. Canvas is a free and open feature of Kibana where you can get creative with your live data — and it supports SQL.
