Kibana is the window into the Elastic Stack

Kibana lets users visualize their Elasticsearch data and navigate the Elastic Stack, so they can do anything from analyzing how flight times are affecting customer retention  to understanding the impact rain might have on their quarterly numbers. Kibana gives users the freedom to select the way they give shape to their data. And they don’t always have to know what they’re looking for. With its interactive visualizations, users start with one question and see where it leads them. Kibana core ships with the classics: histograms, line graphs, pie charts, sunbursts, and more. They demonstrate the full aggregation capabilities of Elasticsearch.
