Can i use multiple hosts of same elasticsearch cluster in Kibana 4


I am planning to configure elasticsearch_url property of kibana.yml to have multiple nodes of same elastic search cluster so that in case one node is down other one is utilized.Is there a way to do it without modifying elasticsearch cluster?

You won't need to do anything to your ES cluster to allow this.

However you may want to look at this as you cannot specify an array of hosts in the settings.

Hi @warkolm,

I tried to setup cluster with client node. But whenever the elaticsearch on local machine is stopped the dashbaord stops and Kibana shows unable to connect to Elasticsearch at http://localhost:9200

How to configure Kibana to be functional even the ES on local machine where Kibana is running goes down? The Kibana isn't picking up new master from cluster once failover is happened.

Please start your own thread.
