Subject Re: [DISCUSS] - Remove Kibana
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2017 16:51:22 GMT
I don’t think we should remove it until there is a viable alternative for
the capabilities we rely on it for.
Also, the ‘story’ around metron integration with kibana needs to be solid
and well supported at that time.

As part of the ES upgrade, I got to thinking that it makes sense to remove
Kibana and the dashboards we're currently bundling in the MPack. To be
clear, this would not remove the ability to independently install and use
Kibana if the user so chooses, it would only remove the dashboards, and
potentially, the Ambari/MPack management support that we ship.

Removes need to support tooling outside our wheelhouse
Smaller testing effort for ongoing support and future upgrades
Simplifies our base Metron install via Ambari. Also simplifies full dev

User would need to install and setup their own Kibana instance and
If any existing users are using this, they'd need to backup and manage
their own Kibana dashboards going forward. They would also need to handle
any upgrade issues with Kibana post-Metron ES 5.x upgrade.

Any concerns?
