Kibana setting of elasricsearch cluster

Hi All,

I'm new for elastic. If I built a elasricsearch cluster which have one master node and one data node, the kibana should point to which node? is it master node?


Best Regards,

Welcome :smiley:

If you are building a new cluster, 2 nodes is not ideal, 3 is best. Check out for more on that.

However you would probably want to point Kibana to the data node.

Just because you can have nodes with different roles does not mean you should. For clusters up to 3 nodes it rarely makes sense using dedicated node types. Instead let all nodes have the default configuration where they take on all roles.
