Is there any changes to be done in Kibana, when changing the ES data path?


(Kulasangar Gowrisangar) #1

I'm having a number of indices which are actually causing some space issues at the moment in my Ubuntu machine. The indices keep growing on a daily basis.

So I thought of moving it to another mount directory which has more space apparently.

What I did: Followed this SO and moved my data directory of Elasticsearch somehow to the directory (/data/es_data) I needed.

So what I need to know is, is there any configuration changes I should be doing in Kibana , after changing the data path in ES yml.

Any help could be appreciated.

Hi @Kulasangar_Gowrisang,

since Kibana only ever talks to the Elasticsearch HTTP API no changes should be necessary in your case. The actual location of the data is a node-specific configuration and invisible to Kibana.

@weltenwort thank you for your response :slight_smile:

I was a bit curious on that, since it was regarding live data.

Now I'm clear! Thanks again.
