Amazon OpenSearch Service now supports new administrative options that provide more granular control over troubleshooting potential issues with your cluster. These options include the ability to restart the OpenSearch process on a node, and the ability to restart a data node.
Amazon OpenSearch Service monitors key health parameters of nodes for anomalies and takes corrective actions to ensure clusters remain stable. Expert users of OpenSearch Service have wanted granular control over some of these automated mitigation actions. With the new administrative options to restart the OpenSearch process on a node, and the ability to restart a node, customers have the necessary control if and when required. Customers can trigger these actions using the management Console, command line interface (CLI), or the software development kit (SDK).
The new administrative options are supported for all OpenSearch Service clusters running any OpenSearch version or Elasticsearch versions 7.0 and above.
For more information on the new administrative options, please see documentation. New administrative options option is now available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
