Best OS for elasticsearch


(Serg) #1

Hi! I using RightImage_CentOS_5.4_x64_v5.6 image for ES cluster. But I
heard recently that on ubuntu (version?) it works much faster. It's
true? What meaningful difference between ubuntu and centos that makes
it faster if it's true?

Hi,

I haven't tested CentOS vs. Ubuntu, but I highly doubt it makes any
difference. The key parts are various ES/Lucene settings, JVM tuning
and such.
