Help with 4 node cluster

Hi

I am in need of help on setting up a 4 node elasticsearch servers. I have
installed and configured ES on all 4 nodes but I am lost as to what the
configuration in elasticsearch.yml will be:

  • if I want to have all 4 nodes both master and data
  • make node A act as primary shard while node B acts as its replica then
    node C as primary shard while node D as its own replica.

Thanks

Take a look at these pages -
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/deploy.html

Also there is not really any point in forcing shard types on specific
machines, unless you want to leverage some kind of awareness. A primary and
replica shard are the same thing other than a metadata flag that
differentiates them.

you can make all nodes as master + data by setting following in
elasticsearch.yml file. i dont think/know if you can setup 2 nodes as
primary in cluster. For each index, you can set number of replica as 1 or
more, so ES will automatically move them to different nodes than primary
shard. i recommend using unicast for discovery as shown below if you have
static IPs.

node.master: true
node.data: true
discovery.zen.ping.multicast.enabled: false
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["IP1", "IP2"]

Hi,

You always want an odd number of master nodes (often 3), so I would
therefore recommend setting three of the four nodes to be master eligible
and leave the fourth as a pure data node. This will prevent the cluster
getting partitioned into two with equal number of master nodes on both
sides of the partition.

Best regards,

Christian

You can have 4 master eligable
​if you want​
, just set discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes
​ to 3 to ensure a quorum.​

But ideally as Christian mentioned, it's best to have an uneven number of
masters.
