DevOoops: Elasticsearch

Notes from the Devoops talk on Elastic Search

Elasticsearch Provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a RESTful web interface and schema-free JSON documents.

*GET request to port 9200 will show version

“version” : {
“number” : “1.2.4”

Can search stored data via HTTP API

Update data with PUT request

Join an open cluster and receive all data

RCE prior to 1.2.0 (CVE-2014-3120)
RCE prior to 1.5.0* (CVE-2015-1427)


Searching via curl/browser is cumbersome…Kibana FTW

Elasticsearch solutions:
