Pgrep not showing desired output

I am searching for a process that should be up and running. Im using the following command

ps -ef | grep elasticsearch

to get

elastic+  1673     1  0 Jan29 ?        05:08:56 /bin/java -Xms4g -Xmx4g -Djava.awt.headless=true -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction=75 -XX:+UseCMSInitiatingOccupancyOnly -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djna.nosys=true -Des.path.home=/usr/share/elasticsearch -cp /usr/share/elasticsearch/lib/elasticsearch-2.3.3.jar:/usr/share/elasticsearch/lib/* org.elasticsearch.bootstrap.Elasticsearch start -Des.pidfile=/var/run/elasticsearch/ -Des.default.path.home=/usr/share/elasticsearch -Des.default.path.logs=/var/log/elasticsearch -Des.default.path.conf=/etc/elasticsearch

Even the process can be seen using

Hint: Some lines were ellipsized, use -l to show in full.

But I want to check the process status using the pgrep command but it does not return anything.

[root@csdp-e2e-mongodb-secondary-2 init.d]# pgrep -a elasticsearch
[root@csdp-e2e-mongodb-secondary-2 init.d]#

is there any limitation to pgrep command ?
# 2  
man pgrep:
-f, --full
The pattern is normally only matched against the process name. When -f is set, the full command line is used.
