Installing Graph

To install Graph, you install two components: an Elasticsearch plugin that provides the Graph API, and a Kibana plugin that provides the interactive Graph UI.

For basic installation instructions, see Getting Started with Graph.

Graph Installation Prerequisites

Graph 2.4.4 requires:

  • Java 7 or later
  • Elasticsearch 2.4.4
  • Kibana 4.6.4
  • Elasticsearch License 2.4.4 plugin
  • A modern web browser - Supported Browsers

For information about installing the latest Oracle JDK, see Java SE Downloads. For information about installing Elasticsearch, see Installation in the Elasticsearch Reference.

Important

You must run the version of Graph that matches the version of Elasticsearch you are running.

Installing Graph on a DEB/RPM Package Installation

If you use the DEB/RPM packages to install Elasticsearch, by default Elasticsearch is installed in /usr/share/elasticsearch and the configuration files are stored in /etc/elasticsearch. (For the complete list of default paths, see Directory Layout in the Elasticsearch Reference.)

To install the License plugin and the Graph plugin on a DEB/RPM package installation, you need to run bin/plugin install from the /usr/share/elasticsearch directory with superuser permissions:

cd /usr/share/elasticsearch
sudo bin/plugin install license
sudo bin/plugin install graph
Note

If the configuration files are not in /etc/elasticsearch you need to specify the location of the configuration files by including -Des.path.conf.
