sgadmin opens 14 tcp sessions with 50 ms. Please help.

Hello,

SG Version:search-guard-6-6.1.1-20.1.zip

ES version:6.1.1

sgadmin.sh opens like 14 TCP sessions within 50 milliseconds (Sends like 14 consecutive Hellos).

Other than pushing the given below config ymls, is there anything else sg_admin does.?

sg_action_groups.yml sg_config.yml sg_internal_users.yml sg_roles.yml sg_roles_mapping.yml

We follow cert-based auth and hence my sg_config.yml looks like this. Is there a way we can push the given below config dynamically?. Roles and users, we have the REST API interface. (https://docs.search-guard.com/latest/rest-api.html). If there is a way to dynamically configure the sg_config.yml, I dont have to invoke sgadmin.sh to push the initial config is the idea. We have our own Java implementation and it is having trouble dealing with 14 consecutive Hellos.

cat sg_config.yml

searchguard:

dynamic:

authc:

clientcert_auth_domain:

http_enabled: true

transport_enabled: false

order: 1

http_authenticator:

type: clientcert

config:

username_attribute: cn #optional, if omitted DN becomes username

challenge: false

authentication_backend:

type: noop

cat /elasticsearch/plugins/search-guard-6/tools/sgadmin.sh

#!/bin/bash

DIR="( cd "( dirname “${BASH_SOURCE[0]}” )" && pwd )"

BIN_PATH=“java”

if [ -z “$JAVA_HOME” ]; then

echo “WARNING: JAVA_HOME not set, will use $(which $BIN_PATH)”

else

BIN_PATH="$JAVA_HOME/bin/java"

fi

“$BIN_PATH” $JAVA_OPTS -Dorg.apache.logging.log4j.simplelog.StatusLogger.level=OFF -cp “$DIR/…/:$DIR/…/…/…/lib/:DIR/../deps/*" com.floragunn.searchguard.tools.SearchGuardAdmin "@”

thanks.
