Hi ES community,
Trying to setup a cluster with about 10 heterogenous blades at the moment, more to be added in the form of VMs and other blades. Have had non-cluster experience with 1.5.4, but mostly to setup proof of concepts for small scale demos.
Now the requirement is to use logstash-forwarder from 10 remote sites to redis+LS+ES. 20 people need Grafana and Kibana based dashboards.
- What should be the ideal characteristics of a
- Dedicated Master Node: (eg: high CPU, small disk size, high RAM)
- Dedicated Data Node: (eg: high speed disk, high RAM, low CPU)
- Dedicated Client Node: (eg: High CPU, RAM etc)
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["IP0", "IP1"]
Should this list contain the list of all IPs in the cluster? What happens when new hosts are added? Do all the configs need to be updated?
ES2.0 yml config does not seem to have the config for shards and replicas. Is it not required?
Is a replica only for fault tolerance, or does it speed up querying when many people are using the front end dashboards for customer queries?
Thanks in advance!
