Elasticsearch hangs


(Weiwei Wang) #1

hi,all,

  • *I have 4 es node with 32 shard 1 replica, each with 8G memory. my
    elasticsearch version is elasticsearch-0.18.5.
    I start each node with command:
    nohup bin/elasticsearch -Xms8g -Xmx8g -Des.max-open-files=true
    -Dbootstrap.mlockall=true -p es.pid

and current the index size is:
size: 35.3gb (70.7gb)
docs: 15938184 (17506608)

from elasticsearch-head i noticed that:
jvm: {

  • pid: 17608
  • version: 1.6.0_13
  • vm_name: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM
  • vm_version: 11.3-b02
  • vm_vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
  • start_time: 1337151263158
  • mem: {
    • heap_init: 2gb
    • heap_init_in_bytes: 2147483648
    • heap_max: 5.3gb
    • heap_max_in_bytes: 5726666752
    • non_heap_init: 130.4mb
    • non_heap_init_in_bytes: 136773632
    • non_heap_max: 560mb
    • non_heap_max_in_bytes: 587202560
      }

}

from top command:
21003 work 18 0 8879m 8.3g 9796 S 257.0 13.2 48:45.98 java

21003 is elasticsearch's pid and we can see that cpu usage is 257.0% and
keeps around that, some time even 300+%.

every one month I have to restarted all my es nodes otherwise it will
responses very slow and dumps a *.hprof file.

from the index size we can see that we have only 30G around index(70 total
with replica) and each node has 8G memeory, but es still performs very
poorly.

how should i do to achieve better performance and avoid restarting es
nodes(which is very frustrating)

It might be worthwhile to upgrade to the latest version 0.19.7. We had a very similar problem with 0.19.3 & 0.19.4 and upgrading to 0.19.7 fixed this issue for us. Take a look at the upgrade notes, concerning upgrading from 0.18.X versions.

Regards,

Daniel.

thanks daniel, i'm planning to do that. I'm testing my client which use
client lib's TransportClient to connect to es cluster and find that client
lib also need to upgrade, so I need to do a full test because we use it in
our online product.
