Cluster Overview screen shows hostname and strange cluster name


Running a CrateDB 4.6.6 cluster and the overview screen shows the hostname which is correct, but I’m also seeing a strange name for what I think is the name of the cluster. The name showing to the left of the host name is “Elsighore”.

Is this the correct name for the default cluster? Also, how can this be changed.



Ok reading through the documentation I found:
    Runtime: no

    The name of the node. *If no name is configured a random one will be generated.*

So looks like the random name is normal if none is assigned for the node name.

Further reading has brought some additional enlightenment, and was able to change the “” entry in the /etc/crate/crate.yml file.



By default CrateDB sets a value from the sys.summits table.
