[Announce] BigDesk - Live charts and statistics for ElasticSearch cluster


(Lukáš Vlček) #1

Hi,

I have just released BigDesk. It is simple JavaScript based monitoring tool
for ElasticSearch cluster.
You can checkout it here https://github.com/lukas-vlcek/bigdesk and give it
a go (it is pretty simple to use).

It is far from being perfect but comments are welcome.

Note: originally, I developed this tool when I was implementing experimental
JavaScript client for ES (https://github.com/lukas-vlcek/elasticsearch-js).
For now I extracted it into a standalone tool because I did not have a
chance to work on JS client part for a long time and it is currently
outdated.

Regards,
Lukas

Would love to see a screen cap!

Hi Lukas,

Very great job you have done here...
Can't wait for tomorrow to test it... So let's start a small ES cluster...

Here is a screen cap for James : http://flic.kr/p/9QEH5b

I will try to launch tomorrow at work with more data in ES cluster ! :wink:

Cheers,
David.

Hey, good job on the screenshot David :slight_smile: however, it is just a static
picture while the tool is fully animated (and I really like to animation
after pressing the "GO!" button).

Going forward I will try to put more effort into the visual design (I want
the tool to look really nice). Also I have been discussing this tool with
Clinton today and he came up with an interesting idea: let's put the state
of the tool into URL parameter, as a result you could directly bookmark
specific setup of the tool (host, port, refresh interval, time window ...).
This is definitely possible and I will implement it in the future.

Regards,
Lukas

Oh yes. It’s only a static picture but it’s really user friendly so people seeing this picture will certainly download the tool to see it live.

Really really good job with nice design.

Is it a stupid idea to make your code as an ES plugin as Shay talked before with plugin static pages ?

It could be a nice idea to have this tool with the simple command plugin -install bigdesk

Perhaps a nonsense again ! :wink:

Packaging bigdesk using the new feature in ES should be possible, I haven't
been looking at it yet.

Hi Lukáš,

thanks for this tool.

Where do you prefer to have suggestions for features or bug reports ?

Via github issues ?

It already works with the new _site plugins. You run: bin/plugin -install lukas-vlcek/bigdesk, and then head over to http://localhost:9200/_plugin/bigdesk/ (the trailing slash is important).

I finally had a chance to play around with BigDesk and all I have to say is
NICE JOB! Very simple, yet the pertinent information is all there.

Also decided to check out the node.js proxy. Are the default permission in
proxy.json enough for BigDesk? I added _cluster to the allowed GET
requests, but I receive an error when attempting to connect with BigDesk:

This function is executed after receiving response from Elastic Search
cluster.

For those that are interested, I was able to get BigDesk working with
the node.es proxy.

The difference is in the postRequest function. The example proxy did
not account for the jsonp wrapped response data. I am not a
Javascript developer, so please excuse me if my code is not as clean
as I would like it to be or if it has errors.

I also added _cluster to the allowed GET requests:

Just to reiterate: great job on BigDesk.

Not being a front-end/javascript developer, I had to look up what
jsonp actually is. My solution is naive, but it seems to be working.
You can track how well (or not) ES works on a single EC micro-
instance:

http://microinstance.com/

Feel free to hammer away. The server is purely for testing out ideas.

Have a great weekend,
