Managed instance of Elasticsearch 2.4.


Upon activating the role, Elasticsearch forms a cluster named as the VM’s name. To change the cluster name, add a file /etc/local/elasticsearch/clusterName, with the cluster name as its sole contents. To activate run sudo fc-manage --build (see Local configuration for details).

Elasticsearch instances are configured with a reasonable memory configuration, depending on the VMs configured memory.
