Breaking ChangesMarvel 2.0.0 is a complete rewrite from Marvel 1.3. If you are upgrading from Marvel 1.3:

  • Note that the Marvel agent plugin only needs to be installed on the Elasticsearch nodes you are monitoring.
  • If you need to stop collecting data from a node, remove the plugin or set the marvel.enabled configuration parameter to false. The marvel.agent.enabled parameter is no longer supported.
  • The Marvel exporter settings have changed. If you are using a separate monitoring cluster, you will need to update your configuration. For more information, see Setting up a Separate Monitoring Cluster.
