Esctl

A Command-Line Interface designed to ease Elasticsearch administration.

Key FeaturesInstallationHow To UseExamplesLicenseDeveloping


Esctl is a CLI tool for Elasticsearch. I designed it to shorten huge curl commands Elasticsearch operators were running like :

curl -XPUT --user "john:doe" 'http://elasticsearch.example.com:9200/_cluster/settings' -d '{
    "transient" : {
        "cluster.routing.allocation.enable": "NONE"
    }
}'

The equivalent with esctl is

esctl cluster routing allocation enable none

Key Features

  • Easy to use CLI rather than long curl commands (thanks to cliff)
  • Cluster-level informations : stats, info, health, allocation explanation
  • Node-level informations : list, hot threads, exclusion, stats
  • Cluster-level and index-level settings
  • _cat API for allocation, plugins and thread pools
  • Index management : open, close, create, delete, list
  • raw command to perform raw HTTP calls when esctl doesn't provide a nice interface for a given route.
  • Per-module log configuration
  • X-Pack APIs : users and roles
  • Multiple output formats : table, csv, json, value, yaml
  • JMESPath queries using the --jmespath flag
  • Colored output !
  • Run arbitrary pre-commands before issuing the call to Elasticsearch (like running kubectl port-forward for example)
  • Fetch cluster's credentials from external commands instead of having them shown in cleartext in the config file

Installation

Using PIP

pip install esctl

From source

pip install git+https://github.com/jeromepin/esctl.git

How To Use

Esctl relies on a ~/.esctlrc file containing its config. This file is automatically created on the first start if it doesn't exists :

clusters:
  bar:
    servers:
      - https://bar.example.com

users:
  john-doe:
    username: john
    external_password:
      command:
        run: kubectl --context=bar --namespace=baz get secrets -o json my-secret | jq -r '.data.password||@base64d'

contexts:
  foo:
    user: john-doe
    cluster: bar

default-context: foo

Running pre-commands

Sometimes, you need to execute a shell command right before running the esctl command. Like running a kubectl port-forward in order to connect to your Kubernetes cluster. There is a pre_commands block inside the context which can take care of that :

clusters:
  remote-kubernetes:
    servers:
    - http://localhost:9200
contexts:
  my-distant-cluster:
    cluster: remote-kubernetes
    pre_commands:
    - command: kubectl --context=my-kubernetes-context --namespace=elasticsearch port-forward svc/elasticsearch 9200
      wait_for_exit: false
      wait_for_output: Forwarding from
    user: john-doe

Along with command, you can pass two options :

  • wait_for_exit (default: true) : wait for the command to exit before continuing. Usually set to false when the command is running in the foreground.
  • wait_for_output : if wait_for_exit is false, look for a specific output in the command's stdout. The string to look-for is interpreted as a regular expression passed to Python's re.compile().
