Confused about saving (backing up) configuration information

I've been playing with both Elasticsearch and Solr. I have made much more
progress with Elasticsearch since it basically seems to work "out of the
box" and then you can tweak things later. Solr, on the other hand, seems
to have numerous configuration files that must be customized to make
anything work.

My difficulty, though, is how to recreate the configuration tweaks I use in
one Elasticsearch installation for use elsewhere. It's obvious with Solr
since they are all in regular filesystem files. How do I extract the
customizations I have done, without pulling all the stored data at the same
time? I see that the API has "get mapping", "get settings" etc, but how do
I know that I have pulled all the settings out? Is there a way to extract
all configuration information without extracting the data?

Depends what OS you are on and how you installed it, but check out
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-dir-layout.html

  • specifically the conf directory.

You should be able to collect whatever you have applied, if you are using
the API as it seems, via /_cluster/settings.
