Curator_cli show_indices gives no output

(Jack Arnold) #1

Just trying out creator, so far I've installed the RPM on my elasticsearch node & tried showing my indices which doesn't give any output. I've tried the following commands;

[root@elastic01 ~]# curator_cli --host --port 9200 show_indices --verbose --header
[root@elastic01 ~]# curator_cli --host --port 9200 show_indices --verbose --header

Both of which silently exit. Apparently an expired x-pack licence can cause this issue. I have uninstalled the x-pack plugin from elasticsearch, but the issue still persists.

Elasticsearch is bound to, and curator_cli is running from the same machine elasticsearch is on, so both of those IP's should work. Any help appreciated.

A full restart of the cluster is typically necessary to fully purge X-pack.

Also, debug logging is appropriate for troubleshooting here. You could add --loglevel DEBUG to see what it reveals. If that still shows nothing, a YAML --config might help, where you can add blacklist: [] to the logging block. This will show all elasticsearch and urllib3 log traffic, which is suppressed by default, as it is extremely verbose.

I've rebooted & tried again, here is the output from that command;

I've got no errors there so i'm assuming it's connecting ok? Does the same thing with

Running this gives no output.

curator --config /usr/share/curator/curator.yml /usr/share/curator/action.yml

The following is written to the log, my log level is set to 'DEBUG'

2018-06-12 14:29:01,901 DEBUG                curator.cli                    run:108  Client and logging options validated.

Any ideas?

(Aaron Mildenstein) #4

Let me process this in reverse order.

Not progressing past action_file: /usr/share/curator/action.yml indicates a YAML parsing error. Something is probably improperly indented.

Not progressing past Not using "requests_aws4auth" python module to connect. indicates that Curator was unable to establish a client connection to the indicated node. This can further be tested by running: curl (or and seeing the output at the command-line.

Just ran the curl command, it wouldn't connect either. Checking the service i'm getting the following;

elasticsearch dead but subsys locked

Not sure why, it was up and running this morning, I was using kibana. Very strange. It's only stopped working since the reboot.

I've tried restarting the service, deleting the /var/lock/subsys/elasticsearch file, and rebooting the server, still with the same issue.

(Aaron Mildenstein) #6

That's an entirely different issue. Not sure how you hit that, but I've never seen it before.

(Jack Arnold) #7

It's only cropped up following the reboot after removing x-pack - It was working this morning.

Going to try rebooting again and see if I can get this fixed.

(Jack Arnold) #8

Well, following a reboot, elasticsearch and curator are now working.

This is really weird - I keep having issues where there have been no config changes & part of my stack breaks, with no apparent causes. Rebooting only sometimes resolves the issues, as I rebooted earlier and the error persisted. Really strange.
