Thanks for giving me chance to explain the problem.
We want to propose elasticsearch to our client for one of the requirement. We want to keep HDFS as a data repository. Every raw data gets moved to ES.
Once the data has been moved to HDFS. We want to query hdfs data from elastic search. Splunk has a way to do it using virtual indexes. There is part of elastic search-hadoop solution (repository-hdfs), which speaks the same terms. You can create hdfs repository
Here is the detail:
I tried it and added repository in elasticsearch.yml. However, i dont understand the way to query the data. How could i access the data from hdfs in elasticsearch through query or through kibana.?
