I am running a 3 node cluster and basically I want to see how many writes per second I have to my index in ES. I know X-pack is good for this to give me monitoring functionality, but before I install it on my 3 node cluster, I want to just monitor these rates command line.
Is it possible command line, just to list how many writes I have to a particular index per second? I see there are many command for displaying cluster state,what can I issue just to to see Index Rate per second?
The command below almost gives me too much, all I want is a representation command line of what Monitoring in Kibana would give me, for Index rate p/s curl -XGET 'localhost:9200/xyz/_stats?pretty'
X-pack sounds great but I believe I read its best to install on separate server to my ES cluster? I dont have a spare VM at the moment. I don't want to reload my current cluster at the moment as well, and I believe this is manditory when installing X-pack?
I found the following command that does what I need, maybe useful for others too: curl -XGET 'localhost:9200/_cat/count/twitter?v&pretty'
I can initiate this count command and see per second, what has been written to my index, easy to calculate per second the write.
