1. Describe your incident:
It is strange, but I cannot see already sent Alerts in window “Alerts $ Events” although emails works correctly - I have received many of them. The problem started when I’ve changed “” in elasticsearch.yml. Procedure was: 1. stop graylog and elasticsearch. 2. change “”. 3 copy directory “nodes” to new place with proper permissions. 4 start everything.
After that, everything is correct, but alerts are not presented in “Alerts $ Events” window.

  • OS Information:
    Linux 7
  • Package Version:
    Graylog 4.2.9

did you also change path.logs? You didn’t mention it. there is an older post here that hits some details on process and permissions for moving Elasticsearch…

Hello && Welcome @konradkuczynski

Add on, Couple suggestion.

You may want to check MongoDb since it holds all your metadata… Check Date/time is correct on the server. Perhaps set the Alerts & Events to 7 Days to see if they show up.

Hello and thank you for yours answers. I checked permissions on files and directories - they were correct. Server is synchronized with time server. But I managed to find a solution. The solution was:
1 First I checked indices - they were all green.
2. Then I went to System->Indices. I rotated active indexes in “Graylog Events” and “Graylog System Events” and recalculated indexes ranges on old indices.
3. Alerts appeared in window “Alerts & Events”.


if you get a chance @konradkuczynski can you mark this post as resolved for future searches? :+1:
