In case you encounted power outage or just blindly pressed restart button on your machine, there is high chance you will have some issues with your cluster. Mine has only one node, so there is no redundancy. If I lose indices then data is gone. Fortunately starting Elasticsearch and having red indicators not necessarily means data lose. I recently went that path. Log says that primary shards was missing. In such case you need to check if there are those indices listed: With that command look for red statuses. Internal mechanisms have this delay rule, so check every minute if
I already have over 10 virtual machines in my home virtual environment. It is the number I find enough to start using some automation tools like Ansible. Installing Ansible on Ubuntu or CentOS systems is straightforward, just use regular apt or yum commands. With Ansible you can use commands or create scripts. First you should start with hosts definition file which by default is located at /etc/ansible/hosts. You can use different hosts file but then you need to point it while running commands. This one is default, so no need to do anything special here. Now going quickly to Proxmox’s
If you happen to have some Bash scripts and would like to abort it in clean way there is way to do it. You need to trap ctrl+c command. In case you have some while loop in your scripts, without it, pressing any abort commands is only half way effective. Now, with ctrl+c trapped, you can cleanly abort your script without things still running.
Once you have installed Elasticsearch and Kibana servers you need to grab some data. First choice could be beats modules, either Metricbeat or Packetbeat. There is also Filebeat. Altough installation instructions are available at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/7.17/metricbeat-installation-configuration.html I found it useful to describe it separately as this page might just disappear out of a sudden. After installation you need to change the configuration file at: Change Kibana and Elasticsearch output addresses. Then start the agent: In case this is the first time you are installing the agent against this particular Elasticsearch server you need to load visualizations and dashboard definitions: Now you’re
I have this nice MacBook Pro (3,1) from 2007. It has Intel’s Core 2 Duo running 2.2 GHz. Unfortunately the battery is dead or electronics reponsible for charging it. It arrived fully charged and was working for like 2 hours or so. In case the battery runs our of any kind of charge and it is not recognized by the system, then the computer will not start at all. This was like a shock to me, but it’s the Apple hardware. To start MacBook without the battery you need to: press and hold power button for 10 seconds with power
Recently I’ve been tryout Elasticsearch 7 with Kibana and Metricbeat as well as Filebeat. I encountered some issues with indices so I dropped dashboards and visualizations and tried to load them again. I also cleared indices and patterns thru index management page. If you get error message like “could not locate that index-pattern” or something with fields being non-optimized then you should take few actions. Please note that it was my lab Elastic installation so I do not care about deleting indices. First you need to either stop all of your metricbeat modules sending data to the cluster or do
Recently I got Lenovo ThinkPad T61 in working conditions. It has Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 @1.8 GHz, 4 GB of DDR2. At its maximum it can have up to 8 GB of RAM and C2D T9500, altough I’m not quite sure if changing CPU would be straightforward operation – it seems to be socketed, not BGA. I purchased it because of NVIDIA NVS 140M dicrete GPU onboard and unconventionally high screen resolution of 1680×1050. This comes as a benefit but makes few things difficult. Windows 10 works just fine. But if you want to have Ubuntu on it… it
