Marvel is installed as an Elasticsearch plugin. The plugin must be installed on every node in the cluster. By default, the plugin will store data in the same Elasticsearch cluster that it is monitoring.
Marvel 1.3 is compatible of Elasticsearch 1.0-1.7
The latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari is recommended. Internet Explorer 10 and above are also supported.
If you are using Sense to access a remote cluster, you will need to configure the cluster to allow CORS requests. See CORS for more details.
We have to install Marvel on all nodes in the cluster to collect data, and the collected data will be stored in the same cluster.
Traverse to Elasticsearch home directory and run following command
bin/plugin -i elasticsearch/marvel/latest
Restart the Elasticsearch node.
Once the plugin is installed in all nodes, we can access the Marvel using the following URL
node-name can be Elasticsearch node name or IP address.
To use Marvel 2.0, we need to install two components:
- An Elasticsearch plugin that collects data from each node in our cluster which will be installed on every node.
- A Kibana app that provides the Marvel monitoring UI.
Install Marvel into Elasticsearch,
bin/plugin install license
bin/plugin install marvel-agent
By default, the Marvel plugin stores data in the same Elasticsearch cluster where it is installed.
