The nodes shutdown API allows to shutdown one or more (or all) nodes in
the cluster. Here is an example of shutting the
_local node the
request is directed to:
$ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/nodes/_local/_shutdown'
Specific node(s) can be shutdown as well using their respective node ids (or other selective options as explained here .):
$ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/nodes/nodeId1,nodeId2/_shutdown'
The master (of the cluster) can also be shutdown using:
$ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/nodes/_master/_shutdown'
Finally, all nodes can be shutdown using one of the options below:
$ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_shutdown' $ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/nodes/_shutdown' $ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/nodes/_all/_shutdown'
By default, the shutdown will be executed after a 1 second delay (
The delay can be customized by setting the
delay parameter in a time
value format. For example:
$ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/_cluster/nodes/_local/_shutdown?delay=10s'
The shutdown API can be disabled by setting
the node configuration.
