Short reminder on how to start up quick and dirty elastic cluster using docker and docker-compose. It will start master, one node and kibana. Once it's up and running we can install hq plugin and more.
This should not be used in production, it's simple set up for quick prototyping that involves elastic.
- Recent version of docker (tested with docker beta on OSX)
- Docker compose (recent version)
Up and running:
Create docker-compose.yml as shown bellow:
version: '2' services: master: image: elasticsearch:2 ports: - "9200:9200" restart: always container_name: es_master links: - kibana:kibana depends_on: - kibana es-node: image: elasticsearch:2 command: elasticsearch --discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts=es_master restart: always container_name: es-node environment: - "affinity:container!=*master*" - "affinity:container!=*es-node*" depends_on: - master - kibana links: - master:es_master - kibana:kibana kibana: image: kibana:4 environment: - ELASTICSEARCH_URL=http://es_master:9200 ports: - "5601:5601/tcp" container_name: kibana
In the same directory run:
## To run in foreground run: docker-compose up ## or to run in background: docker-compose up -d
Once containers are up and running, we can install elastic HQ with the following command:
docker exec es_master plugin install royrusso/elasticsearch-HQ
This will require Internet connectivity from docker containers, as it will fetch plugin from github, and will take a while depending on your connection speed.
Once download is done and plugin is installed, open browser and go to Elastic HQ, it should look something like this:
To access Kibana and verify it's up and running point your browser to: Kibana Frontend, and behold:
Quick, dirty and very easy, but very useful for quick proof of concept or test.
