The startup of Elastic Search was pretty slick once I found out to use the 'Elastic Search Service'. before that was some complicated create setup but that complicated setup resulted in nodes I can see in GCP at least.
For some reason, I can't see any of my nodes created by Elastic Search Service which I find weird/odd. Is this normal? If I can see them, it's easier to look into monitoring and stats on each node. It would be nice if they where there but where named for elasticservice so I knew.
