hi,

elastic search data directory is removed. how to restore data. elastic search process is still running.

How did it get removed? Do you have a backup to restore from?


(Maddy M) #3

I accidentally used rm command to delete the data directory and it is running in single node. but process is still up.

  1. Will starting the new member will work?
  2. can connect take comlpete backup from ES? as I can see data through kibana

Elasticsearch does not hold all data in memory, so I suspect the data may very well be lost.


(Maddy M) #5

okay. How I am seeing that data in kibana?


(Christian Dahlqvist) #6

That sounds odd. Would expect that to fail quite quickly. Are you sure you deleted the data directory Elasticsearch uses? Is there anything in the Elasticsearch logs?
