I have successfully running an ELK server on my RHEL6 machine for months now, but it is filling up my HDD very quick now with the indices, so i wanted to start using Curator which seems to do the trick by deleting old indices before my HDD gets full.
So i did a "yum install python-pip" and "pip --version" gives me
After that I did a "pip install elasticsearch-curator", but that didn't go well i'm afraid:

When i read the log, i suddenly see that it is going to download elasticsearch

Downloading elasticsearch-1.6.0.tar.gz (63kB): 63kB downloaded
Running setup.py egg_info for package elasticsearch[/quote]
Why is he doing that? I already have it all setup, so i don't want it to get screwed by a new setup.
And is there a way to setup Curator for me? I don't understand much from pip, because it is new to me, so hopefully someone can help me with this.
