Although my new Wiki pages describe how to install and run Logstash tutorials on openSUSE, everything should also work on SLES. These pages obsolete most of the pages I've posted on Big Data (all current pages are still linked in my Wiki)

Two pages
For Beginners learning Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana
Previews and describes some fundamental concepts when running the Logstash tutorials (Tutorial Links on the page)

Install from repos
Ready for Productions? Or at least Staging?
The official Elasticsearch documentation only describe how to setup YUM and APT.
Here are the instructions to setup and get started using zypper.

If anyone is interested in this Big Data Analysis (and Search) stack, feel free to PM me.
