Been a while since i posted here, but i got a bit of a head scratcher.
i went and tested this rollout https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/apps/elastic.elasticsearch?tab=Overview and it went ok so i logged into kibana and looked good. Checked my Azure VM list and saw my three VM's, All good.
So now i want to import some of my modified plugins and scripts to logstash, and blow me down... no logstash.
I checked in my kibana VM.. nothing, then went to the other VM's and found i can't log into them... i probably can get into them but to be honest its a trial setup so i can knock it down if needed....
what i need is some plan English explanations on this market place roll-out.
Its all well and good having a metric ton of data and files in git and on the Elastic.co site, but theres nothing thats explaining in real plain English what these mean. Kibana node i understand... im a bit puzzled NGINX isnt installed, but i'm assuming we're looking at Azures infrastructure architecture replacing the functionality of NGINX.
Data node i think is the data shard repository ?
Master node does the searching of the data nodes?
Client node ??????
So the thing that puzzled me, when its deployed into Azure, and here i did a 2 node 1 kibana install, i couldn't find logstash, i could probably fumble through a seperate VM just for logstash into the same resource group, and probably fumble getting ES and LS talking to each other, but i thought this marketplace item was supposed to cover all of this.
Anyone else installed this and has some guidance they can offer on where i look for logstash?
