How Kibana Connect to Multiple Coordinating Nodes

Hi, there,

My question is about multiple coordinating nodes and how to connect to kibana in production environment. I believe the best practice would config multiple coordinating nodes for fault tolerance, and also can keep large number of connections at the same time. Those coordinating nodes do not need load balancer in front of them because they have build-in smart load balancing function. Logstash and many other languages can handle this multiple hosts without loading balancer. However, kibana can’t connect to multiple coordinating nodes, based on below the latest doc:

Based on above doc, the recommend way is to setup kibana on the same coordinating node. However, in this case, there is only one coordinating node for the whole ES cluster, which should not be the best practice in the production environment.

Really appreciate the advise about the best practice of how to setup multiple coordinating nodes, and the connection with kibana?


Hi as that elastic node on the Kibana is working as coordinating node, this node wont be having any load and only used for retrieving the information form elastic cluster. This is the best practice suggested on elastic website and we have been using the same architecture in production and haven't faced any problem. But just to make sure we configured two Kibana instances on two different servers just in case any one fails
