Daikon

Description

Daikon is a CLI for ElasticSearch to make some of the basic admin tasks associated with ElasticSearch a little easier than using curl... you know for us lazy folks.

It's written in Python, and requires python 2.7.x, anyjson, and Python-Requests.

Why 'daikon'. Well, 'daikon' is a radish that is used in the making of kimchi. For those who know ES, you'll know what that means ;) and of course HUGE shout out to @kimchy

Installing

This should work :

$ pip install daikon

And even this should too, but you shouldn't use it... :

$ easy_install daikon

Configuration

Configuration is defined in /etc/daikon/daikon.conf, or ~/.daikon.conf, and has the format :

[default]
host = localhost
port = 9200
replicas = 3
shards = 2

Current Functionality

Commands :

* Working with Indexes
    * Create Indexes
        examples:
            daikon index create <indexname>
            daikon index create --replicas <replicas> --shards <shards> <indexname>
            daikon index create --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <indexname>
    * Delete Indexes
        examples:
            daikon index delete <indexname>
            daikon index delete --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <indexname>
    * List Indexes
        examples:
            daikon index list <indexname>
            daikon index list --extended <indexname>
            daikon index list --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <indexname>
    * Open Indexes
        examples:
            daikon index open <indexname>
            daikon index open --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <indexname>
    * Close Indexes
        examples:
            daikon index close <indexname>
            daikon index close --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <indexname>
    * Status Indexes
        examples:
            daikon index status <indexname>
            daikon index status --extended <indexname>
            daikon index status --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <indexname>
* Working with Clusters
    * Status View
        examples:
            daikon cluster status
            daikon cluster status --extended
            daikon cluster status --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port>
    * Shutdown Clusters
        examples:
            daikon cluster shutdown
            daikon cluster shutdown --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port>
* Working with Nodes
    * List
        examples:
            daikon node list
            daikon node list --extended
            daikon node list --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port>
    * Status
        examples:
            daikon node status <nodename>
            daikon node status --extended <nodename>
            daikon node status --cluster <clustername> --host <host> --port <port> <nodename>
    * Shutdown
        examples:
            daikon node shutdown <nodename>
            daikon node shutdown --delay <delayseconds> <nodename>
            daikon node shutdown --cluster <clustername> --port <port> <nodename>

Planned Functionality

Future Planned Functionality :

* Working with Rivers (and provide plugin supports for rivers)
* Working with indexes to dump, and import
* Working with cluster maintennace
* Working with searches, exporting results
* Enhance Logging (Syslog, Debug Logging, Log File)
