I'm looking for a baseline server recommendation for running ES in a
cluster. When I've reviewed other threads, there is little in the way of
specifics (though my search may not have been exhaustive). I understand
that there are many variables but I think a blessed baseline and some
specific guidelines would be helpful to those getting started and those
moving towards production.
A set of recommendations like:
the uncached version is password protected and I don't see a signup)
would be very helpful. Aside from the baseline, I'd like to better
- How does using ES as the primary data store impact the baseline?
- Baseline networking recommendations
- What's the max percent of data that should be on any one node for
responsive fail over?
- Is there any role for a SSD drive on a node for fast swap? I remember
Shay speaking of swapping Filter/Cache data to disk and it would seem
reasonable for that use case. Didn't know if there were any current uses.
If we can get some consensus here on baseline and rules, I'd be more than
willing to write this up for posting on the ES site (or modifying /
updating an existing resource if needed).
