3 node cluster

I'm trying to setup a 3 node elasticsearch cluster but there appears to be no communication between the 3 nodes even after adding them severally to the discovery.seeds. Please logs below

Kindly assist.

Hi @Chinedum_Nwuzor

These errors indicate you have a number of issues....

Perhaps you should read the section on setting up elasticsearch

And specifically pay attention to the network settings

And the Discovery settings

Hi @stephenb,

Many thanks for your reply.

As per your first link, elasticsearch starts and I can curl localhost:9200. I believe if i'm having Java compatibility issue elasticsearch wouldn't be able to start.

I also believe i've configured my network host and discovery settings quite alright. Kindly see below if i missed out anything;

Elasticsearch performs poorly when the system is swapping the memory.

---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------

Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6):


Set a custom port for HTTP:

#http.port: 9200

For more information, consult the network module documentation.

--------------------------------- Discovery ----------------------------------

Pass an initial list of hosts to perform discovery when this node is started:

The default list of hosts is ["", "[::1]"]

discovery.seed_hosts: ["", ""]

Bootstrap the cluster using an initial set of master-eligible nodes:

cluster.initial_master_nodes: ["node-1", "node-3"]

For more information, consult the discovery and cluster formation module documentation.

---------------------------------- Gateway -----------------------------------

Block initial recovery after a full cluster restart until N nodes are started:

#gateway.recover_after_nodes: 3

For more information, consult the gateway module documentation.
