You might want to customize values in the ‘Network’ section in elasticsearch configuration file (typically
... # ---------------------------------- Network ----------------------------------- # # Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6): # network.host: 192.168.0.100 # # Set a custom port for HTTP: # http.port: 9200 # # For more information, consult the network module documentation. ...
The agent provides an example configuration file to help you get started quickly. It defines the plugin and task file to be loaded by the agent, but requires you to provide the correct settings for your Elasticsearch server. To enable the plugin:
1. Make a copy of the elasticsearch example configuration file
renaming it to
$ sudo cp /opt/SolarWinds/Snap/etc/plugins.d/elasticsearch.yaml.example /opt/SolarWinds/Snap/etc/plugins.d/elasticsearch.yaml
/opt/SolarWinds/Snap/etc/plugins.d/elasticsearch.yamlconfiguration file with settings specific to your Elasticsearch server for example:
collector: elasticsearch: all: server: "127.0.0.1" port: 9200 timeout: 5s load: plugin: snap-plugin-collector-aoelasticsearch task: task-aoelasticsearch.yaml
serveris optional and defaults to

- Restart the agent:
$ sudo service swisnapd restart
