Elastic/Kibana Maintenance

Hi everyone,
I was wondering what steps I should follow for production-grade Elasticsearch maintenance for on-premises deployment. Any resources/idea would be highly appreciated.


What sort of maintenance do you have in mind?

Hi @warkolm, I have no specific use case in mind now. I'm just learning for a job placement where the responsibilities would be to set up and maintain a 3-node elasticsearch and rabbitmq clusters. I want to know what type of maintenance is necessary, or I should look for the generic tasks of a web-based system.

Many thanks

Keeping Elasticsearch and Kibana up to date is important.
As is general system patching.

Otherwise make sure you are using things like ILM to manage indices.

Thanks @warkolm for sharing. I will follow up if something specific comes up.

Hi @warkolm, just to make my question little bit me more specific...I'm working for a on premises deployment with docker-compose for a 3-node cluster. So let me know if you can suggest some guidelines/outline that I should follow for time-to-time maintenance (a routine work or something...), device/hardware space upgrade, or ILM management as you referred. I have found this blog post from my search so far, but I'm not sure if this is something I should be looking for.

Thanks again for your time.

We don't really provide maintenance processes like this.

If you are using docker then that does abstract a lot of overhead of patching the Elasticsearch host, as you simply replace the container with an updated version and you'd be following Upgrade Elasticsearch | Elasticsearch Guide [8.4] | Elastic.
