You can obtain the basic information, such as the internal or public endpoint, port number, version, and type of an Elasticsearch cluster from the Basic Information page of the cluster. This topic describes the information displayed on this page.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Elasticsearch console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Elasticsearch Clusters.
  3. Navigate to the desired cluster.
    1. In the top navigation bar, select a resource group and a region.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Elasticsearch Clusters. On the Elasticsearch Clusters page, find the desired cluster and click its ID.
  4. On the Basic Information page, view the basic information and statistics of the cluster.
    Basic Information page
    Section Parameter Description
    Basic Information Cluster ID The unique ID of the cluster.
    Name By default, the cluster name is the same as the cluster ID. Cluster names are configurable. You can search for clusters by name.
    Version The version of the cluster. Valid values: 5.5.3, 5.6.0, 6.3.2, 6.7.0, 6.8.0, and 7.4.0.
    Notice If you want to upgrade the version of the cluster, you can use the version upgrade feature of Elasticsearch. You can upgrade clusters from V5.6.16 to V6.3.2 or from V6.3.2 to 6.7.0. For more information, see Upgrade the version of a cluster.
    Cluster Type The type of the cluster. Valid values: Standard and Advanced.
    Region The region where the cluster resides.
    Zone The zone where the cluster resides.
    VPC ID The virtual private cloud (VPC) to which the cluster belongs.
    vSwitch ID The vSwitch to which the cluster belongs.
    Internal Endpoint The internal endpoint of the cluster. In a VPC, you can use an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance to connect to the internal endpoint of an Elasticsearch cluster.
    Notice For security and stability purposes, we recommend that you do not access an Elasticsearch cluster over the Internet. If you require high security and stability, purchase an ECS instance in the VPC where your Elasticsearh cluster resides. This way, you can use the ECS instance to connect to the internal endpoint of the Elasticsearch cluster.
    Internal Port Elasticsearch supports the following ports:
    • Port 9200 for HTTP and HTTPS.
    • Port 9300 for TCP. Only Elasticsearch V5.X clusters support this port.
      Note You cannot use Transport Client to access Elasticsearch clusters of V6.X or later over port 9300. If you want to use port 9300, purchase a V5.X cluster. For more information about how to access a cluster, see Access and configure an Elasticsearch cluster.
    Public Network Access The public endpoint of the cluster. You can use this endpoint to access the cluster over the Internet. Before you use this endpoint, you must turn on Public Network Access on the Security page. For more information, see Configure a whitelist to access an Elasticsearch cluster over the Internet or a VPC.
    Notice If you use the public endpoint to access the Elasticsearch cluster, you must configure a whitelist to access the cluster over the Internet. By default, all IP addresses cannot be used to access the cluster over the Internet. For more information about how to configure the whitelist, see Configure a whitelist to access an Elasticsearch cluster over the Internet.
    Public Network Port The port used to connect to the cluster over the Internet. This parameter is displayed only after you turn on Public Network Access. Elasticsearch supports the following ports:
    • Port 9200 for HTTP and HTTPS.
    • Port 9300 for TCP. Only Elasticsearch V5.X clusters support this port.
      Note You cannot use Transport Client to access Elasticsearch clusters of V6.X or later over port 9300. If you want to use port 9300, purchase a V5.X cluster. For more information about how to access a cluster, see Access and configure an Elasticsearch cluster.
    Protocol The protocol used by the cluster. Default value: HTTP. Valid values: HTTP and HTTPS.
    Tag The tag added to the cluster. You can use tags to classify and manage Elasticsearch clusters. For more information, see Manage cluster tags.
    Cluster Statistics Status The status of the cluster. An Elasticsearch cluster has the following states: Active (indicated by the color green), Initializing (indicated by the color yellow), Paused (indicated by the color red), and Expired (indicated by the color gray).
    Billing Method The billing method of the cluster. Valid values: Pay-As-You-Go and Subscription.
    Created At The time at which the cluster is created.
    Maintenance Window The maintenance window for the cluster. The default value of this parameter is 02:00 - 06:00. You can specify Maintenance Window based on your business requirements. For more information, see Set a maintenance window.
    Note
    • If you want to renew a subscription cluster, click Renew on the right side of the Basic Information page to perform the operation. The minimum renewal period of a cluster is one month. For more information, see Renew an Elasticsearch cluster.
    • If you want to change the billing method of a cluster from pay-as-you-go to subscription, click Switch to Subscription on the right side of the Basic Information page to perform the operation. The Switch to Subscription feature allows you to change the billing method of an Elasticsearch cluster from Pay-As-You-Go to Subscription. However, no discount is offered when you change the billing method. For more information, see Switch the billing method of a cluster from pay-as-you-go to subscription.
