Full Description

Qbana (Ω) is an independent Kibana 3 fork with several additional features, new Panels, integrated Sense and client/server aggregations support, intended as dedicated tool for nProbe users as well as a possible alternative to Kibana for ElasticSearch users and abusers willing to live "off-the-grid"

Qbana ships loaded with:

  • Dashboards for nProbe v7 and its many plugins (HTTP, DNS, SIP, RTP, PROCESSES, etc)
  • Features for server/client-side aggregations, multi-value term_stats and stats, additional datatypes and more
  • Additional Panels and D3 Visualizers (Force, Flows, Flow Histograms, Bullet Stats, MuchBetterMaps, etc)
  • Developer console (Sense) linked to Inspect which allows you to easily issue calls to Elasticsearch’s REST API
  • Flexibility to add/extend/change whatever you want without having to deal with anyone's business-plan

######<i>"Join the Ω"</i></font>


Qbana is an open source (Apache Licensed), browser based analytics and search interface to nProbe,
Logstash and other timestamped data sets stored in ElasticSearch.


  • Elasticsearch 0.90.9 or above
  • A modern web browser. The latest version of Chrome, Safari and Firefox have all been tested to
    work. IE9 and greater should work. IE8 does not.
  • A webserver. No extensions are required, as long as it can serve plain html it will work
  • A browser reachable Elasticsearch server. Port 9200 must be open, or a proxy configured to allow
    access to it.


  • A reverse proxy to take care of security or a hosted solution which does it for you



Documentation, panel options and tutorials can be found on the WiKi


  1. Download and extract a snapshot or clone this repository to your webserver.
  2. Edit config.js in your deployed directory to point to your elasticsearch server. This should not be
    , but rather the fully qualified domain name of your elasticsearch server.
    The url entered here must be reachable by your browser.
  3. Point your browser at your installation. If you're using Logstash with the default indexing
    configuration the included Kibana logstash interface should work nicely.


Q: Why doesnt it work? I have http://localhost:9200 in my config.js, my webserver and elasticsearch
server are on the same machine
A: Qbana does not work like Kibana 2 or 4. To ease deployment, the server side
component has been eliminated. Thus the browser connects directly to Elasticsearch. The default
config.js setup works for the webserver+Elasticsearch on the same machine scenario. Do not set it
to http://localhost:9200 unless your browser and elasticsearch are on the same machine

Q: How do I secure this? I don't want to leave 9200 open.
A: A simple nginx virtual host and proxy configuration can be found in the sample/nginx.conf

Q: I'm running ES on a secured cluster with authentication. How do I configure Qbana?
A: Use in your config.js: elasticsearch: {server: "https://your.elasticsearch.server:80", withCredentials: true},

Q: I'm running ES on a secured cluster with authentication. How do I configure Sense?
A: Open Sense (/sense) and perform an initial query/configuration using https://user:pass@server:port
