Issue in elasticsearch configurations

(Riccardopierpaoli) #1

Hello, I'm new in Elasticsearch x-pack plug-in and I have a problem to configure Metricbeat.
My configuration is composed by 2 clusters: one for monitoring, compound by one node (port 9202) and one cluster for data nodes, composed by 2 nodes (ports 9201 and 9200).
I've installed x-pack on all nodes of the clusters. The Elasticsearch and Metricbeat version is the 6.2.4.

:black_circle: This is my Metricbeat configurations:

`#=========== Modules configuration ===============

path: /etc/metricbeat/modules.d/*.yml
reload.enabled: false
#==================== Elasticsearch template setting ==========================

index.number_of_shards: 1
index.codec: best_compression
#_source.enabled: false

#======================== General ==============================

name: metricbeat-test-cluster

#Optional fields that you can specify to add additional information to the
env: aws-test-env
#================= Dashboards =================
setup.dashboards.enabled: true
#============================ Kibana ========================

#Starting with Beats version 6.0.0, the dashboards are loaded via the Kibana API.
#This requires a Kibana endpoint configuration. ""
#Kibana Host
#Scheme and port can be left out and will be set to the default (http and 5601)
#In case you specify and additional path, the scheme is required: http://localhost:5601/path
#IPv6 addresses should always be defined as: https://[2001:db8::1]:5601
#======================= Outputs ==========================

#Configure what output to use when sending the data collected by the beat.
#-------------------------- Elasticsearch output ------------------------------
output.elasticsearch.hosts: [""]
#output.elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
#output.elasticsearch.password: "elastic"
#output.elasticsearch.ssl.enabled: true
#output.elasticsearch.ssl.verification_mode: none
#output.elasticsearch.ssl.certificate_authorities: ["path/to/node1/pem"]
#output.elasticsearch.ssl.certificate: "path/to/node1/pem"
#output.elasticsearch.ssl.key: "path/to/node1/pem"
#========================= Logging ========================

#Sets log level. The default log level is info.
#Available log levels are: error, warning, info, debug
logging.level: debug

#At debug level, you can selectively enable logging only for some components.
#To enable all selectors use [""]. Examples of other selectors are "beat",
#"publish", "service".
logging.selectors: ["

#==================== Xpack Monitoring ======================
#metricbeat can export internal metrics to a central Elasticsearch monitoring
#cluster. This requires xpack monitoring to be enabled in Elasticsearch. The
#reporting is disabled by default.
#Set to true to enable the monitoring reporter.
xpack.monitoring.enabled: true

#Uncomment to send the metrics to Elasticsearch. Most settings from the
#Elasticsearch output are accepted here as well. Any setting that is not set is
#automatically inherited from the Elasticsearch output configuration, so if you
#have the Elasticsearch output configured, you can simply uncomment the
#following line.
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.hosts: [""]
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.password: "elastic"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.ssl.enabled: true

xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.ssl.certificate: "/path/to/monitoring/pem"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.ssl.key: "/path/to/monitoring/pem" `

:black_circle: When I try to start the service by using the command : "service metricbeat start", the response is:

:black_circle: The log of metricbeat after the service starting is :

2018-06-07T10:43:06.928Z ERROR instance/beat.go:667 Exiting: 'xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.hosts' and 'output.elasticsearch.hosts' are configured

Q1: Could you help me on this issue?
Q2: Is it possible to store both metricbeat's indices, monitoring and metric, on monitoring node?I could sucessfully store monitoring index on monitoring node, but, of course, metricbeat index won't be seen by kibana...

Thank you!

If you use Elasticsearch as output you must send the metrics to the same cluster. This is a current limitation that you can't send it to the monitoring cluster directly. Should be possible in the future. So you have to remove the hosts config from inside xpack and let your production cluster forward the data.
