So as can be the problem when you wander blindly in the dark I've set up an elastic box as a VM and given it 2TB of disk however not realising that the /root directory on Linux was its own partition that's where I've set things up and so I'm not starting to find I'm running out of disk at that partition was only 50GB
The data that is in there represents a significant volume of effort and I don't want to have to recreate it. So I wanted to see if either of these 2 solutions would work.
stop all processed feeding elastic
shut down elastic
move the folder from root to opt
start back up
restart feeder processes
As I'm thinking of putting it on it's own physical hardware anyway
Set up a new box
put everything in the right place this time
give it the same cluster name
wait for it to replicate
decommission the old box.
or if they won't does anyone know what will?
