We are having an issue with elasticsearch index creation. In our cluster we
create new indices everyday at midnight and at the moment we create about
150 new indices every time.
Lately we have started getting log lines like the following during index
[2014-05-05 00:00:35,596][DEBUG][action.admin.indices.create] [Amber Hunt] [
indexname-2014-05-05] failed to create
org.elasticsearch.cluster.metadata.ProcessClusterEventTimeoutException:failed to process cluster
event (create-index [indexname-2014-05-05], cause [auto(bulk api)]) within
It's not very clear what this error means and how we could stop seeing this
in our logs. Is there a config parameter for the timeout value of bulk
requests? (if that's the problem)
Our cluster at the moment has the following stats and we are using
12 Nodes (3 master, 6 data, 3 search)
13,140 Total Shards
13,140 Successful Shards
We have noticed that around the same time we see the above "failed to
create" message, flume elasticsearh-sink (used on the client side) stops
working, so we are trying to understand if there is any correlation between
these two events (index creation failure, flume elasticsearch-sink failure).
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated!
