39m tweets on two nodes requires 11tb on S3?


(Kenneth Loafman-2) #1

Hi,

ES 0.11.0-SNAPSHOT has been running solid for a couple of months with an S3
Gateway, but there's a serious problem. Status shows that there are 39m
docs with a store size of 50.5 GB, see https://gist.github.com/728313. An
'ls' of the contents of the nodes shows thousands of '__*.partNN' files,
some dated a couple of months ago. A 'du' of the indices/twitter directory
(2 nodes) shows 11 TB, quite a bit of waste space!

What's the best way to compress and clean up this mess? Are old part files
eligible for deletion? How do I keep this from happening again?

...Thanks,
...Ken

Each snapshot operation that happens should clean up at the end all files that are no longer referenced. The "part" files are broken down files into chunks to improve the write performance into S3 and work around the 5gb limit. Is there a chance that you can upgrade to 0.13.1?

It looks like the cleanups are not happening in 0.11 as they should.

Will be upgrading to 0.13.1 today, in 'local' mode. This should clear up
the problem, and since we have two nodes, we should be able to quiesce one,
back it up, and bring it back online, at least that's the way I think the
backup should be done. Any thoughts on that?

If you want to move to local gateway mode from shared (s3) gateway, you need to reindex the data.

Doing that now. I could not figure out how to clear out the old part files
safely and wanted to get away from S3 anyway, so reindex it is.

Are you using EBS for the local storage? This should give you better IO perf (well, sometimes, depends how AWS woke up in the morning), and better long term persistency.

No, just the local storage on the machines themselves. We're not hosted on
Amazon and the transfer costs were getting horrendous, much more than the
storage costs.

Right, I see. I agree, using s3 outside of amazon makes much less sense than using local gateway.
