I have a cluster with two node, the second node added recently and only has Elasticsearch installed. Both are running on two different aws instances. Instance 1 has ELK installed and instance 2 has only Elasticsearch installed. My question here is -
If the instance 1 goes down, is there a way (other than load balancing these two servers ) to view Kibana dashboard via instance 2? As of now there is only ES installed on ES 2.
Apart from replicating the data from 1st ES node to 2nd ES node, what other function does adding the second node serve ? Is it only for replication? If yes how does that work incase there are issues with ES of instance 1
