Since a while, I've been suffering from timeout each time I wanted to make a change through REST API calls.
I've given the issue some thoughts and came to the idea of temporary blocking any incoming data so it wouldn't trigger any ingest or bulk operation. I have a few concerns:
- I don't want to lose any data coming from the filebeat clients because the elastic search server was unavailable for too long.
- If possible, I don't want to touch the firewall settings.
I thought about removing the data and ingest role to the node? Is it a viable way to do that?
