What I’m hoping for is that it will make tasks simpler:
1. to see Unassigned shards I currently:
ssh into the node then:
curl -X GET "localhost:9200/_cat/shards?h=index,shard,prirep,state,unassigned.reason" | grep UNASS
The output isn’t easy to understand. E.g.
index.1 0 p UNASSIGNED NODE_LEFT
index.2 8 p UNASSIGNED INDEX_CREATED
ElasticHQ does mention that it will:
- Monitor Nodes, Indices, Shards, and general cluster metrics.
However, if it’s via the Diagnostics pane then that takes ages – an indefinite amount of time. I’m currently at around 15 minutes and still seeing json scroll past in my console without seeing anything in the GUI.
2. delete an index
3. stop shard allocation
