Actually this is not a new project - but might be new some
of the users on this list.
elasticsearch-head is a web based interface to an es cluster. eshead
connects to one of the cluster nodes using ajax and the restful api to
show information and allow interaction with the cluster. More
information is available at http://mobz.github.com/elasticsearch-head/.
If you are playing around with elasticsearch it's definitely worth
having eshead on hand.
At the moment I'm developing an 'overview' mode which shows - in a
grid - all your nodes, and indices, with the shard / replica
allocation. The idea for this is that it could become a management
interface for the cluster.
My question is: What operations (eg delete an index, change setting)
and what information (shard status, load, available disk space?) would
be useful to see from this interface.
You can see the prototype by downloading elasticsearch-head ( git
clone git://github.com/mobz/elasticsearch-head.git ) and navigating to
the "Overview" tab.
In general, very happy to accept feature requests, and or abuse about
