Getting Started With Packetbeatedit

The best way to understand the value of a network packet analytics system like Packetbeat is to try it on your own traffic.

To get started with your own Packetbeat setup, install and configure these related products:

  • Elasticsearch for storage and indexing the data.
  • Kibana for the UI.
  • Logstash (optional) for inserting data into Elasticsearch.

See Getting Started with Beats and the Elastic Stack for more information.

After you have installed these products, you can start Step 1: Installing Packetbeat.
