Breakdown Issue with Kibana


I have installed elasticsearch and kibana ( version 5.0.1 for both) on the same server.

Rather than using the default values for, elasticsearch.url and, I am using the DNS entry for the server.

Kibana and Elasticsearch work fine for a number of hours, albeit they are a little slow, until suddenly it stops working. I get the error that the request timeouts after 3000ms when I run a search in Discover.

Then Kibana stops me from carrying out any searches or visualisations and I get the following error page.

If that image doesn't work - the main errors are :

  • Status: Red
  • UI settings : Elasticsearch plugin red
  • plugin:elasticsearch@5.0.1 : Request timeout after 3000ms.

If anybody know why this error suddenly appears, I'd be very grateful to hear.
At the moment I just uninstall elasticsearch and then reinstall it and it works, but this is not a practical solution.

Do the elasticsearch logs say anything? Does ES respond to requests sent via curl to the same domain name that Kibana is pointed at? What about by IP?
