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 the resource group to which the cluster belongs and the region where the cluster resides.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Elasticsearch Clusters. On the Elasticsearch Clusters page, find the cluster and click its ID.
  4. On the Basic Information page, view the basic information and statistics of the cluster.
    Note The following table describes only significant information. The actual information in the console prevails.
    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, such as 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 V5.5.3 to V5.6.16, from V5.6.16 to V6.3.2, or from V6.3.2 to V6.7.0. 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 The ID of the virtual private cloud (VPC) to which the cluster belongs.
    vSwitch ID The ID of 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 Elasticsearch cluster resides and 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 V6.0 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 public or private IP address whitelist for an Elasticsearch cluster.
    Notice If you use the public endpoint to access the Elasticsearch cluster, you must configure a public IP address whitelist for the cluster. 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 public IP address whitelist for an Elasticsearch cluster.
    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 V6.0 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. For more information, see Enable HTTPS.
    Resource Group Name The name of the resource group to which the cluster belongs. For more information, see Create a resource group.
    Resource Group ID The ID of the resource group to which the cluster belongs. For more information, see Create a resource group.
    Tag The tags 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 when 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 configure 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 Elasticsearch renewal.
    • If you want to switch 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. No discounts are offered when you switch the billing method. For more information, see Change the billing method of a cluster from pay-as-you-go to subscription.
