Live charts and statistics for ElasticSearch cluster.

bigdesk ElasticSearch
master 0.19.x → master
1.0.0 0.17.x → 0.18.x


In order to install the plugin, simply run: bin/plugin -install elasticsearch/elasticsearch-mapper-attachments/ for master version.

To get specific version of bigdesk use: bin/plugin -install elasticsearch/elasticsearch-mapper-attachments/1.0.0

You can also chekout bigdesk into your local harddrive (or download and extract zip from github) and simply use it by opening index.html in your favorite web browser.

How to use bigdesk

Once you open bigdesk in your web broswer, you need to point it to the elasticsearch node REST endopint. For example if you run elasticsearch locally the REST endpoint would be http://localhost:9200/ by default. In bigdesk master you can simply specify any endpoint URL in the text field on top of the screen. If you are using bigdesk 1.0.0 (ie. you want to connect bigdesk to elasticearch 0.17.x – 0.18.x) then you need to fill into two different text fields. First you specify hostname of the elasticsearch node into the first text field and its port number into the second text field (but in some situations this can be limiting, for example if you run elasticsearch behind firewal).

Then you hit Connect button (it is called GO! button in bigdesk 1.0.0) and that’s it.

Now you should see cluster name and list of its nodes. You can switch between nodes in the cluster, new nodes are added and old nodes are removed automatically on the fly.

You can change bigdesk refresh inerval and amount of data that is displayed by charts.

If you are using bigdesk 1.0.0 you can immediately connect to a particular host, add the host, port, and go parameters to the query string: index.html?
