Extract then start .bin file
Windows users can configure Elasticsearch to run as a service to run in the background or start automatically at startup without any user interaction. This can be achieved through
service.bat script under
bin/ folder which allows one to install, remove, manage or configure the service and potentially start and stop the service, all from the command-line.
Installing MARVEL, which comes with an interactive console ‘sense’, which makes it easy to talk to ES directly from a browser.
Marvel is available as a plugin
Turn off monitoring of your local cluster
echo ‘marvel.agent.enabled: false’ >> .config/elasticsearch.yml
