Scaling Elasticsearch is not an easy task. In this article, we go over different methods to make a High-Availability Logstash Indexing Solution using Qbox Hosted Elasticsearch.
Logstash Indexer is the component that indexes events and sends them to Elasticsearch for faster searches. We will use multiple logstash indexers with the exact same configuration. Having multiple indexers with the same configuration opens up different possibilities to make a highly available logstash solution for your ELK stack. These indexer nodes with identical configuration can easily be created using configuration management tools like Puppet or Chef.
