GitHub's ops focused Elasticsearch library
This project is a golang library for interacting with an Elasticsearch cluster. It's goal is to provide a high level API to help with common tasks that are associated with operating an Elasticsearch cluster such as querying health status of the cluster, migrating data off of nodes, updating cluster settings, etc.
This project does not aim to be a fully-featured API client for querying or indexing to Elasticsearch.
You can perform custom operations in your Go application.
import "github.com/github/vulcanizer" v = vulcanizer.NewClient("localhost", 9200) oldSetting, newSetting, err := v.SetSetting("indices.recovery.max_bytes_per_sec", "1000mb")
Command line application
This project produces a
vulcanizer binary that is a command line application that can be used to manage your Elasticsearch cluster.
$ vulcanizer help Usage: vulcanizer [command] Available Commands: aliases Interact with aliases of the cluster. allocation Set shard allocation on the cluster. analyze Analyze text given an analyzer or a field and index. drain Drain a server or see what servers are draining. fill Fill servers with data, removing shard allocation exclusion rules. health Display the health of the cluster. heap Display the node heap stats. help Help about any command hotthreads Display the current hot threads by node in the cluster. indices Display the indices of the cluster. mappings Display the mappings of the specified index. nodeallocations Display the nodes of the cluster and their disk usage/allocation. nodes Display the nodes of the cluster. repository Interact with the configured snapshot repositories. setting Interact with cluster settings. settings Display all the settings of the cluster. shards Get shard data by cluster node(s). snapshot Interact with a specific snapshot. Flags: --cacert string Path to the certificate to check the cluster certificates against --cert string Path to the certificate to use for client certificate authentication -c, --cluster string Cluster to connect to defined in config file -f, --configFile string Configuration file to read in (default to "~/.vulcanizer.yaml") -h, --help help for vulcanizer --host string Host to connect to (default "localhost") --key string Path to the key to use for client certificate authentication --password string Password to use during authentication --path string Path to prepend to queries, in case Elasticsearch is behind a reverse proxy -p, --port int Port to connect to (default 9200) --protocol string Protocol to use when querying the cluster. Either 'http' or 'https'. Defaults to 'http' (default "http") -k, --skipverify string Skip verifying server's TLS certificate. Defaults to 'false', ie. verify the server's certificate (default "false") --user string User to use during authentication Use "vulcanizer [command] --help" for more information about a command.
Roadmap and future releases
The proposed future for vulcanizer can be found in our ROADMAP.
Configuration and connection information
All commands take
--cluster <name> to look up information in a configuration file in
~/.vulcanizer.yaml. The configuration should be in the form of
local: host: localhost port: 9200 staging: host: 10.10.2.1 port: 9201 production: host: 10.10.1.1 port: 9202
Alternatively, all commands take
--port for the connection information.
# Query for cluster health on the "local" cluster vulcanizer health --cluster local # Query for nodes against the node 10.10.2.1 and port 9202 vulcanizer nodes --host 10.10.2.1 --port 9202
./script/build will compile the project and install the
vulcanizer binary to
./script/test will run the tests in the project.
Supported Elasticsearch versions
Integration tests are set up to run against the latest v5 and v6 versions of Elasticsearch.
Vulcanization is the process of making rubber more elastic, so vulcanizer is the library that makes Elasticsearch easier to work with!
This project is under active development.
To get up and running, install the project into your $GOPATH and run the set up scripts.
go get github.com/github/vulcanizer cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/github/vulcanizer ./script/bootstrap ./script/test
And the test suite should execute correctly.
