SodoSopa is where the Elasticsearch stack lives. It will grow into additional nodes ( maybe ) That cluster is going to be arm64. However stacking isn't going exactly swell.
Kibana isn't entirely with the arm64 thing yet. And to process logs - you need a thingy called Beats. FileBeats, specifically for logs. And that isn't available in non x86 persuasions. So that part actually has become the first hard x86 requirement. This is so I can stop cussing every time I grab an amd64 distribution because I haven't cleaned my glasses and find there a blocker for knuckle dragging this forward. I can fake it for a while with a VM on my mac. I'll have to get a NUC to have a x86 node. Something AMD with cores would be ideal ... but the ghost of labs past has me build low power anymore. I can put this on a UPS and run for a long time ( We have these power outages where I am, usually when the wind blows ) but even just one x86 host would likely cut that time in half or less.
Elastic.co has some commitment to ARM - and it was going pretty swell there for awhile until I hit the Beats issue. I ran into Beats in a past job. I didn't know what it was or why it was creating a problem with the tool I supported. It seemed no one knew. Knowledge hole filled - hardware requirement created.
So this is the dashboard, for the thing -
SodoSopa seems to need a Shi Tpa Town (x86 land) to do some things for now.
Looking at the Github repo - https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/9442
There is a work-around there that could run on the K8console Pi. But I'd rather not run it on a armhf kernel. Lots of folks working on the ARM bits.
A bit of configuration and I have the Beat thingy connected to Elasticsearch.
There is also a metricbeat thingy
