No output from curator


I have followed the steps listed in the installation instructions (I downloaded the Centos 7 RPM package as the server has no internet access) but I cannot run any commands.

Expected Behavior

When running a simple command such as curator --help I expect to see some output

Actual Behavior

There is nothing outputted.

Steps to Reproduce the Problem

  1. Download rpm package from the link provided above
  2. Perform a local YUM install
  3. Confirm it has installed in /opt/elasticsearch-curator/ and the sym-link has been created in /usr/bin/curator
  4. Try to run any command using the curator or curator_cli


  • Version: elasticsearch-curator-5.5.4-1.x86_64.rpm
  • Platform: Centos 7

Some examples:

server ~$ curator --help
server ~$ curator doesntexit
server ~$ curator --pleeeease
server ~$ curator --

Hi @omisnomis ,

I would request you to take output of the below commands and post it here for better understanding of your problem.

to check process running or not:
ps -ef | grep -n curator

to check curator service is running or not:
systemctl status avahi-daemon

And i want to know that you have created curator.yml file or not if you have created then please post here.

Let me know if you have any issue on executing above commands.

Thanks, @akhileshsingh. I'm already tackling this at The user just asked in both places.


@theuntergeek @akhileshsingh - Apologies, I wasn't sure which was the best place so I posted it in both :slight_smile:
