Migrate from 0.11.0 to 0.16.0


(Eugen Zagorodniy) #1

Hello all!

I have ES 0.11.0 running, using shared FS gateway. What steps should I
take to update ES to 0.16.0? Which problems are expected in case of
running ES 0.16.0 with the same configuration on existing storage?

Thanks!

In general, the most important update notes to read are for 0.13 and 0.16. You should be able to directly upgrade from 0.10 to 0.16 (while reading the relevant release notes), but I suggest you test it first.

Also, if you upgrading, think about the option to move to local gateway (Which will require to reindex) compared to the shared fs gateway option.

I tested it on simple index and succeeded. Following settings needed to
be added to ES configuration:

cluster:
routing:
operation:
use_type: true

path:
data: work
work: worktmp

Also, if you upgrading, think about the option to move to local
gateway (Which will require to reindex) compared to the shared fs
gateway option.

What benefits would local gateway provide? Reindexing is undesirable
due to large size of the index.

Thank you for reply!

local gateway will not require you to set a shared file system, and reduce the IO operations of snapshotting the data from each local node to the shared FS.
