I've setup elasricsearch on a machine with the following specs:
Storage: 500 GB HDD
Ram: 8 GB
CPU : Intel i7 Quad-Core
On the same machine I have an application that listens to netflow data and exports it to elasticsearch. I've noticed , however , that the other application complains about the data being dropped since the bull queue is too long.
I've tried increasing the bull queue size to something like 10000 bit it doesn't seem to help.
New indices are build daily.
Is there anyway to troubleshoot this ? How can I find out if elasricsearch is actually dropping the data ?
