Increasing http.max_content_length


I have a CSV file of size 1.3GB which I would like to create a Kibana dashboard for. However, when uploading data, Kibana only allows a maximum file size of 100MB.

I have gone into the elasticsearch.yml config file and added http.max_content_length: 1.5gb (added - it wasn't there to begin with) and also into the kibana.yml config file and added xpack.reporting.csv.maxSizeBytes: 1500000000.

However when I now visit localhost:5601 nothing has changed - it still tells me that the upload limit is 100MB.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance.

The answer here is to use a tool like Logstash and process the file line by line instead of sending it to Elasticsearch all at once. Have a look at this introduction to Logstash.

Thank you, I will look into this.
