Elasticsearch gets unresponsive with logstash

Hello,

we use a two node elasticsearch (version 1.1.1) cluster in combination with
logstash to centralize our log management.
We currently facing the problem that the cluster gets unusable unresponsive
after a couple of hours. The "head" plugin doesn't get any data as well as
the Kibana web-interface.
We cant see any errors in the logs and a curl Get respond 200 OK on both
nodes.

After restarting the elasticsearch service everything works fine again.

On both nodes we have the following configuration:
grep ^[^#] /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml
cluster.name: TEST_Logstash
node.name: "server2"
path.data: /data/elasticsearch
discovery.zen.ping.multicast.enabled: false
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["server1:9300", "server2:9300"]
monitor.jvm.gc.young.warn: 500ms
monitor.jvm.gc.young.info: 200ms
monitor.jvm.gc.old.warn: 5s
monitor.jvm.gc.old.info: 2s

Cheers
Chris

Check your ES logs, you are probably running into GC issues.

How many nodes, how much heap, how much data is on the nodes - both GB and
index count, how many shards, how many replicas, what java version?

Hello,

sorry for the incomplete information I'm kinda new to elasticsearch.

  • In our setup we have 2x elasticsearch data/client nodes and 4 logstash
    instances just seen as clients.
  • both elsaticsearch servers have 32 GB memory and the heap is
    8GB -Xms8g -Xmx8g -Xss256k
  • 150 total shards
  • 15 Indices
  • 40,100,997 documents
  • 21 GB total size
  • Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_67-b01)
  • One replica

For each day a new index is created with 5 shards an one replica.

I hope this helps, thank you!

Cheers
Chris
