UPDATE: Don’t follow ANY of this. None of it worked for me. New post coming.
I’m going to use Debian packages when ever I can. I’m using the instructions from here. It works as advertised but I prefer to put my repos in their own files. This is a small gotcha, you have to install openjdk-7-jdk.
netstat -ntlp | grep ::9
tcp6 0 0 :::9200 :::* LISTEN 13362/java
tcp6 0 0 :::9300 :::* LISTEN 13362/java
Used the repo instructions from here. It worked. Had to change the Debian default file but still get this due no config files yet:
[FAIL] There aren’t any configuration files in /etc/logstash/conf.d … failed!
Next up, Installing Kibana:
It is pretty much a direct download from here.

Unpack it in a dir, I choose /usr/local/src/
Then run it, ./$PATH/bin/kibana . I had to run it a few times with strace before it steady up. I have no data going into ElasticSearch yet, so Kibana has nothing to see but here is a screen shot.
