I am upgrading to a more efficient machine to run my ES on but I do not want to lose the data I have already stashed in my ES. Here is what I have tried so far:
1.) Node Exporter
In a command shell: node exporter.js -a myCurrentIPAddess -p 9201 -b myDestinationIPAddress -p 9200
(Note: my current ES is directed to 9201, however, I also tried this command after redirecting it to 9200)
Here was the output:
2.) Copying and Pasting ES
I tried to zip my current ES and copy and paste it in the new machine. In the elasticsearch.yml file I then changed the max number of nodes to 2. I was able to get both instances up and running but when I looked at the new ES on the new machine the data from my old ES was not there.
3.) Reindexing with Logstash:
here is my config file
here was the output
My goal is to create a new instance of ES on a new machine but send data from my current ES instance to it so it can be accessed in Kibana.
Thank you so much for your help!
