How to setup Elasticsearch Custer in Centos

I have followed these steps in order to setup Elastic search in production.

# OS Requirements: Centos 6+ & Java 1.8+    


Installing Java

Download JDK from : http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html 
tar xzvf jdk.tar.gz
sudo mkdir /usr/local/java
sudo mv jdk1.8.0_45 /usr/local/java/
sudo ln -s /usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_45 /usr/local/java/jdk
export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/java/jdk/bin"
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_91/jre
sudo sh -c "echo export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_91/jre >> /etc/environment"


Installing Elasticsearch

wget https://download.elastic.co/elasticsearch/release/org/elasticsearch/distribution/rpm/elasticsearch/2.3.3/elasticsearch-2.3.3.rpm
sudo rpm -ivh elasticsearch-2.3.3.rpm

Step 3:

Configure Elasticsearch

sudo vi /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml

cluster.name: cluster_name # [cluster name. common name given to all elasticsearch servers to join the same cluster]
node.name: hostname-31 #[servername]
node.master: false #[set true only for master node]
node.data: true #[set true for all nodes, except for dedicated master node]

#[This is the path where all data is stored. Give one or multiple paths. Directories must have permsission to user elasticsearch] 
# chown elasticsearch:elasticsearch /home/es/
path.data: ["/home/es/data/es"] 

#[This is the path where all log files are stored. Directories must have permsission to user elasticsearch] 
#chown elasticsearch:elasticsearch /var/logs/es
path.logs: /var/logs/es 

path.work: /home/es/work

bootstrap.mlockall: true #[This setting is must for production]

network.host: "hostname.com"
#http.port: 9200 [9200 is default port. if needed modify this]

#Enter all master nodes
discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["hostname.com"]

# calculate by formula (total number of nodes / 2 + 1)
discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes: 3

# required for production
node.max_local_storage_nodes: 1

# -------------------------------- Threads ------------------
threadpool.index.type: fixed
threadpool.index.size: 40
threadpool.index.queue_size: 10000

threadpool.search.type: fixed
threadpool.search.size: 40
threadpool.search.queue_size: 10000

threadpool.bulk.type: fixed
threadpool.bulk.size: 40
threadpool.bulk.queue_size: 30000

#------------------ allocate memory for write --------------
  indices.memory.index_buffer_size: 30%

#------------------ shard --------------
cluster.routing.allocation.same_shard.host: true

Step 4:

Configure Elasticsearch System Level Setting
# (Important setting)

sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/elasticsearch

#setheap size to maximum 32GB or Half of the RAM size

Step 4:

Change number of open files
Change ulimit Setting: [http://stackoverflow.com/a/36142698/453486]

sudo vi /etc/security/limits.conf

#add line: 
elasticsearch - nofile 65535

Step 5:

disable swap

sudo vi /etc/sysctl.conf
#add lines: 

Step 6:

Installing plugins for monitoring cluster

sudo /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/plugin install mobz/elasticsearch-head
sudo /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/plugin install lmenezes/elasticsearch-kopf

# reboot system for the system level settings to work. /sbin/reboot

Step 7:

To Start/Stop/Restart Elasticsearch

sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch start
sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch stop
sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch restart
