If you want a utility to help you monitor your Elasticsearch nodes and clusters, ElasticHQ is a plugin that can give you a nice GUI.
There are two ways you can install ElasticHQ. If your Elasticsearch server has access to the Internet, you can install the plugin from the command line:
cd $ES_HOME\bin .\plugin install royrusso/elasticsearch-HQ/v2.0.2
You need to use version
2.0.2with the Elasticsearch 2.3.2 that ships with PeopleTools 8.55 and 8.56. The latest version of ElasticHQ is built for Elasticsearch 5.x
To manually install ElasticHQ:
- Download version 2.0.2 from here
- Copy the .zip (or .tar) file to your Elasticsearch server.
- Extract the .zip file to

ElasticHQ is meant to give you a read-only view of the system. If you want to make changes, I’d recomment you use Elasticsearch’s REST API.
To view a node, enter the URL into the box at the top and click ‘Connect’. If your node is part of a cluster, ElasticHQ will show the cluster’s nodes. You can view the size of indexes, the stats of each node, and the cluster stats as well.
