How to create index pattern for Kibana?

July 6, 2015 2.3k views

I followed the same steps mentioned in this tutorial. Yet I am not able to see the timestamp and histogram. Also I am not sure what has to be given for all the ip addresses mentioned in this tutorial. I have used localhost everywhere.
I see this warning message in kibana home page.

Warning No default index pattern. You must select or create one to continue.

I am a newbee, please help me with this. I am really stuck. Also tried the work arounds suggested.
