Hello Folks ,
Currently our Kibana is pointing to a single ES node( we have 3 nodes). if that single node goes down or put in maintenance kibana will not be able to do anything. So I came across this .
- Install ES on same node as kibana and point kibana to it , that ES will act as LB for other nodes.
We are using elasticsearch-5.1.2 , and I am not able to find the below settings in elasticsearch.yml
3. You want this node to be neither master nor data node nor ingest node, but
to act as a "search load balancer" (fetching data from nodes,
aggregating results, etc.)
what would be settings on elasticsearch.yml on the other 3 nodes ?
a . should we count the node running on kibana as well ?
b. should we include the node running on kibana here too discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ?
Should we make any changes to curator ?
Any help would be appreciated .
