Kibana is an open source (Apache Licensed), browser based analytics and search dashboard for ElasticSearch. Kibana is a snap to setup and start using. Written entirely in HTML and Javascript it requires only a plain webserver, Kibana requires no fancy server side components. Kibana strives to be easy to get started with, while also being flexible and powerful, just like Elasticsearch.

Kibana 3 depends on the facets feature. Facets were removed in the 2.0 release of Elasticsearch. Kibana 3 does not support Elasticsearch versions greater than 1.7.
