Elasticsearch Unreachable or Down!


(Cjs6891) #1

Hi,

My ELK stack has been running great for months, until recently. I've been receiving the following error:

[2017-08-01T13:02:10,092][ERROR][logstash.outputs.elasticsearch] Action

My configuration hasn't change since November, any advice or direction would be appreciated

the error mentions elasticsearch on localhost is not listening or responding and you have not specified what appear in ES logs or used cluster health url to verify if ES cluster is up
Can you check in the logs of elasticsearch if and why elasticsearch is stopped?
Also a few unrelated general recommendations that would probably have prevented the issue
1)you should run logstash separate from ES cluster as both can use a lot of cpu resources.
2)You should also have more than one node for ES cluster in which case logstash can use the other ES nodes when one node is not accessible

I am, and always have been running my ELK Stack on a single node...

all I'm catching in my stdout & stderr is what I've posted

I'll get the stack up & running, even digesting new logs and it randomly has been crashing for the last few days

load average is only 5.12 on a 24 core system, memory consumption is only 4GB of 64GB

is there a limit to the number of indexes, I have about 305

These seem to be logstash logs which just specify ES is not reachable on localhost:9200... Which you can check via curl -XGET http://localhost:9200

elasticsearch*.log files are located in the "logs" folder of the elasticsearch installation folder. If ES is down, restarting it might be the easy solution though you will need to check why it is down from the logs

Caused by: java.io.IOException: Map failed: MMapIndexInput(path="/ELK_Storage/Elasticsearch_Index_Storage/nodes/0/indices/lLv1lYnqQsmuL8DkQxhclQ/2/index/_7i.fnm") [this may be caused by lack of enough unfragmented virtual address space or too restrictive virtual memory limits enforced by the operating system, preventing us to map a chunk of 8270 bytes. Please review 'ulimit -v', 'ulimit -m' (both should return 'unlimited'), and 'sysctl vm.max_map_count'. More information: http://blog.thetaphi.de/2012/07/use-lucenes-mmapdirectory-on-64bit.html]

I start elasticsearch as follows:

**# ulimit -l unlimited**
**# /sbin/runuser elk -c 'ES_JAVA_OPTS="-Xms12g -Xmx12g" /opt/ELK_5.0/elasticsearch-5.0.0/bin/elasticsearch -p /opt/ELK_5.0/elasticsearch-5.0.0/tmp/elasticsearch-pid -d' 1> /tmp/elasticsearch_stdout 2> /tmp/elasticsearch_stderr &**

(Cjs6891) #7

ulimit -v & ulimit -m both returned ‘unlimited’. I doubled vm.max_map_count, so far so good...

Please use the recommended value as a minimum :

@Julien thank you, I appreciate it
