[Monitoring] "Phantom" indices and yellow status


(Cornoualis) #1

Hi!

I removed some .monitoring indices and I have a persistant error in Kibana telling me that my cluster status is yellow (even if it's green):

In the indices view of Monitoring, I see the removed indices as "grey":

I removed the indices a few days ago using the DELETE api, and I have no idea how to make monitoring "understand" that...

Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: I just upgraded to 5.5.1 and now, all indices appears in green (no more grey)...but I still have the error telling my cluster state is yellow.

Any idea? :wink:

Monitoring still contains the historic data of the indices for as long as the configured retention period. You can set the retention period using the xpack.monitoring.history.duration setting in the monitoring settings. It defaults to 7 days.

Would it be possible for you to provide the result of running

curl -u "${ELASTICSEARCH_USER}:${ELASTICSEARCH_PASSWORD}" "${ELASTICSEARCH_URL}/_cat/health?v"

and

curl -u "${ELASTICSEARCH_USER}:${ELASTICSEARCH_PASSWORD}" "${ELASTICSEARCH_URL}/_cat/indices?v"

to check the cluster status?

Thanks for your answer!

Sure, here are the results (everything is green, but the error remains on the cluster monitoring page):

Hi @Cornoualis

The yellow cluster alert could be from the old index .monitoring-alerts-2- could you remove that index and see if it resolves?


(Cornoualis) #6

Hurray!! Thank you @bohyun, the error now disappeared!

How did you know it was this index?
