Data Generator

The following script will create and index some random time series.

from elasticsearch import Elasticsearch

import random
import time

def connect():
   es = Elasticsearch([{'host': 'localhost', 'port': 9200}])
   return es

def list_indices(es):
    for index in es.indices.get('*'):
        print(index)
        print(index.__class__.__name__)
    print('---')
