Elasticsearch: Install ingest node

In this summer I started to work with ELK stack on Azure. This is another interesting topic if you want to increase efficiency of your DevOps activities.

As usual I started with Elasticsearch:

The open source, distributed, RESTful, JSON-based search engine. Easy to use, scalable and flexible, it earned hyper-popularity among users and a company formed around it, you know, for search.

elastic.co

Long story short, I decided to create some hands-on video to show you how you can install and configure an Elasticsearch cluster step-by-step.

First part is: Step-by-step installation and configuration of Elasticsearch 7.3.1 ingest node to Ubuntu 18.04

You can find the related commands here:

# Execute as root
sudo -i

# Get Linux version
cat /etc/issue.net

# Install java
apt install openjdk-8-jre-headless -y

# Check java version
java -version

# Start installation
wget -qO - https://artifacts.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
echo "deb https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/7.x/apt stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elastic-7.x.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elasticsearch

# Install vim
apt install vim -y

# Change vm settings - vm.max_map_count
sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144

# Edit configuration
vim /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml

cluster.name: my-search
node.name: ${HOSTNAME}


## Add - Client
### Turn off data functionality
node.data: false
### Turn on ingest (client) functionality
####### before 5.0
####### node.client: true
####### 5.0 or later 
node.ingest: true


# System configuration
vim /etc/security/limits.conf

*       soft    nofile  64000
*       hard    nofile  64000
root    soft    nofile  64000
root    hard    nofile  64000

vim /etc/pam.d/common-session
session required                        pam_limits.so

vim /etc/pam.d/common-session-noninteractive
session required                        pam_limits.so

# Check MMAP settings
ulimit -m


# HEAP SIZE: RAM/2 = HEAP
free -m

vim /etc/environment
ES_HEAP_SIZE="2g"

# Start elasticsearch cluster
service elasticsearch start
systemctl enable elasticsearch 
### sudo update-rc.d elasticsearch defaults 95 10
service elasticsearch status

curl http://localhost:9200

It is easy! 🙂
