Elastic master nodes storage

Hello folks,

Does master cluster share their Logs even though paths are pointing to local storage on each one ? I mean by that when I do a request from Kibana GUI to my logs.


No, "logs" are local. For example, if you have a client error, you may have to look at all nodes for the one the generated the log message.

If you want to gather them, look at the filebeat elasticsearch module. Be careful, especially with the audit log, it can be very large and a good reason to use ignore_filter.

A process feeding on it's own logs is a easy way to get into a error feedback loop, but with caution, having the logs from all nodes merged and in Kibana can be very useful.

There is a similar module for logstash.

Perfect ! Thanks a lot.

I will have a look at that.
