View and Analyze Data

Now that your index pattern has been created, you have the ability to view and analyze your data through the Discover screen.

You might notice that initially, no results are found. By default, the time filter is set to the last 15 minutes. So if there was no activity in that time period we won't see any data. Follow these steps to change the time filter:

Set the time filter


Kibana Visualization

CHAOSSEARCH's Kibana nodes are currently running in us-east, you may see a discrepancy in Discover if you are outside of the us-east region. The system is set to UTC-4.

  1. Click the Time Picker
  2. Select the desired time period

The histogram shows a window of data over the specified time period. Click and drag inside of the histogram to zoom into the desired duration of time.

Query your data

The power of ChaosSearch is the ability to effectively transform S3 into Elasticsearch. Enter your desired search criteria into the search bar and press Enter or click .


Lucene query syntax

Elasticsearch uses the Lucene query syntax for searches. Refer to query string syntax for more information about constructing your queries.

Explore file details

Click the expand button to the left of any row in the search results to view all file data.

By default, the data is displayed in a tabular format. To view the data as a JSON object, click the JSON tab.

Save a query

Saving queries allows you to quickly reload them in the Discover screen as well as use them as the foundation for creating visualizations. To save a query:

  1. Click Save
  2. Enter a name for the query - for this example we use AppCost
  3. Click Save
