Warning
  • Do not change the Elasticsearch Port (i.e. 9200) post Data-Center synchronization - if the default requires change, change before Data-Center Sync

Default Values: Hostname of the Workbench Elasticsearch application associated host (i.e. "LAB-WB-VM1")
Valid Values: Valid Hostname
Changes Take Effect: After Workbench Elasticsearch application (i.e. "WB_Elasticsearch_Primary") startup
Description: The Hostname of the host where this Workbench Elasticsearch application is running.

Workbench ElasticSearch Discovery

Editable Options

Discovery Host(s)

Valid Values: Valid Hostname
Changes Take Effect: After Workbench Elasticsearch application (i.e. "WB_Elasticsearch_Primary") startup
Description: Used to provide a list of other nodes in the cluster that are master-eligible and likely to be live and contactable in order to seed the discovery process. This setting should normally contain the addresses of all the master-eligible nodes in the cluster. This setting contains either an array of hosts or a comma-delimited string. Each value should be in the form of host:port or host (where port defaults to the setting transport.profiles.default.port falling back to transport.port if not set).

Read Only Options

Initial Master Nodes(s)

Default Values: "node-<WORKBENCH_HOSTNAME>_Elasticsearch"
Valid Values: Valid String
Changes Take Effect: After Workbench Elasticsearch application (i.e. "WB_Elasticsearch_Primary") startup
Description: When you start a brand new Elasticsearch cluster for the very first time, there is a cluster bootstrapping step, which determines the set of master-eligible nodes whose votes are counted in the very first election. In development mode, with no discovery settings configured, this step is automatically performed by the nodes themselves. .

Workbench ElasticSearch Shards

Read Only Options

Number of Shards

Default Values: Populated based on the Workbench installation settings
Valid Values: Valid positive integer number
Changes Take Effect: After Workbench Elasticsearch application (i.e. "WB_Elasticsearch_Primary") restart
Description: Elasticsearch provides the ability to subdivide your index into multiple pieces called shards. When you create an index, you can simply define the number of shards that you want. Each shard is in itself a fully-functional and independent "index" that can be hosted on any node in the cluster.

Important

Sharding is important for two primary reasons:

  • It allows you to horizontally split/scale your content volume.
  • It allows you to distribute and parallelize operations across shards (potentially on multiple nodes) thus increasing performance/throughput.

Number of Replicas

Default Values: Populated based on the Workbench installation settings
Valid Values: Valid positive integer
Changes Take Effect: After Workbench Elasticsearch application (i.e. "WB_Elasticsearch_Primary") restart
Description: Elasticsearch allows you to make one or more copies of your index’s shards into what are called replica shards, or replicas for short.

Important

Replication is important for two primary reasons:

  • It provides high availability in case a shard/node fails. For this reason, it is important to note that a replica shard is never allocated on the same node as the original/primary shard that it was copied from.
  • It allows you to scale out your search volume/throughput since searches can be executed on all replicas in parallel.
