Reload kibana.ymal/elasticsearch.yml dynamically


  1. Is it possible to reload Kibana/Elasricsearch server automatically when their yml files are changed?
  2. If I want to ELK stack on CentOS, is it recommended to use tar.gz version or from CentOS repository? Which one is more recommended?

It is not, no. There's security concerns with this approach which is we force a restart, so that's it's a visible and conscious action.

I would always use the relevant packages for an OS rather than a generic tar.gz/zip. The packages include things like init scripts, and make sure things are laid out as per the OS conventions.
