Who uses ES in production?


(dpilato) #1

Hello < the list > :wink:

I would like to know if someone uses Elastic Search in production
environment. If possible also to give me a feedback about the number of
document indexed.

It will be very useful for IT managers to know that.

Shay ? Do you have somewhere ES testimonials or guestbook ?

Thanks

David.

Regarding usage in production, I will let the list to answer. I know of several quite big production uses of elasticsearch (TBs of data, billions of documents).

What I would love to do is to have a "usage" section in the site. With user stories on using elasticsearch. So, if someone is interested in that, it would be great. We can collaborate on creating the first several user stories.

I plan to use ES in production in a few weeks.

We are a french software company building a social network software for big
companies.

In a first step, ES is used for a super fast auto completion engine.

We also plan to start using ES as a product search engine in our website
cuestamenos.com

This product search engine will also combine search of stores and faceting
by categories and prices.

We're talking here about 5 million products distributed in around 500 stores
and 30 categories.

We are in the process of migrating a social monitoring tool [http://
ataxosocialinsider.cz/; case study here: http://www.couchbase.com/case-studies/ataxo]
from CouchDB-Lucene to ElasticSearch, after couple of weeks of
research and testing. We plan to use ES both on the "frontend" part
(which the customer uses to filter, search, mine mentions) as well on
the "backend" part (the actual crawlers, aggregators, etc).

So far, we've been testing with document counts in several hundred of
thousands only, and the ES performance was more then satisfactory.
Given it's internal design, we're confident it can deal with couple of
terabytes of data and millions of documents on the backend. If we
would be proved wrong, we'll let everybody know :slight_smile:

Best!,

We're using it in production at http://www.presspeople.com/ where
we're indexing mainly press offices and press releases in spanish. We
have only around 100.000 items that we sync from a mongodb database in
near real time, through a queue managed by celeryd. As mongodb and ES
are not updated atomically, we bulk index everything every night
(stopping the update queues before the bulk index and restarting them
after the bulk index finishes). These nightly indexes have a timestamp
in their name, and they're aliased to a canonical name (presspeople).

We have been moving some queries from mongodb to ES, but we don't yet
trust it as the main repository of content. For example a few days ago
I had to move ES directory, and after I could access the last index
(presspeople-2011-3-5), but I could not access it by its aliased name
(presspeople). Being able to wipe old data and rebuild it whenever I
want helps me sleep better.

We love the design and API of ES, and all the features that keep
coming, all in all, I'm a very happy user.

Cheers,

I have been using ElasticSearch for a trivial application at work.
Nothing too exciting, the volume of data is rather low (for now), but
the REST interface allows querying from different applications.

In the meantime, I built a websocket river for ElasticSearch. I am
currently indexing all RSVPs from Meetup.com. Why? Because. :slight_smile: I have
been doing some rudimentary data mining using only ES and JSON calls!
Top programming language (by the amount of RSVPs)? PHP. Top state
for development meetups? NY. My plan is to have an HTML5 interface
to present the data, but I am not a front-end guy and I have yet to
start the work.

Ivan,

Actually, I'd be interested in the meetup river, as I would like to

find events of a particular nature (video game tournaments/casuals for
Street Fighter 4, Marvel vs Capcom 3, etc).

Care to share?

We're using elasticsearch and definitely will put it in production. we're a
company that is streaming the web to you.

http://backchat.io

We're in limited beta but we do things like make a http stream/websocket
stream of web api's/RSS/email/sms. we're looking for more private beta
testers soon.
We allow for filters to be specified on the stream and this all happens
through elasticsearch/lucene. so you have a real-time filtered stream to
everything on the web.

If you would be interested in beta testing this send me your email address
and I'll add you to our invite list.

We've been using elasticsearch in production since last December.
Performance (search/index), flexibility, and APIs are all awesome.

~33 million docs w/ millions of queries per day with avg response
times at ~40ms and max times ~2 secs. Our query strings have a lot of
filters in them, too. Unfortunately, I still can't go into exact
details on where it is being used due to some legal issues.

Our current pain point is that there is a bug around network
partitioning that can cause data loss that we are paranoid about.
Also, when data is re-balancing performance can be impacted, but we
have mostly mitigated that by only allowing a single index cover and
single stream per index.

Collecting data from any websocket into ElasticSearch is just a silly
pet project, which means I have little time to work on it. Here is
some code so far:

It is not complete, but functional. Almost finished with a
configurable index builder (bulk or not). There is no testing since
testing for a plugin seems tricky. The code needs to be abstracted
first. Also, ES plugins need to be compiled for a specific version,
so I need to create a configurable build script instead of changing
the project file, which might be confusing for non-SBT users.

I will probably work on it more after 0.16 is officially released.
0.16 is required, so I am working of maven snapshots for the plugin
build and compiling from master for the actual server.

If you plan on working with Meetup data, the example mapping is far
from complete. The default analyzer and no storage does not work for
most "interesting" fields.

Not sure why my previous response has yet to appear.

Indexing any content from a websocket into ElasticSearch is just a pet
project, which means I do not have much time to work on it! Here is
some code so far:

It is still not complete, but it is functional. I have some code for
configurable index builders (bulk or not) that is not checked in.
Also missing are unit tests since testing for a plugin is tricky.
Need to abstract my classes a bit more first. The main limitation is
the build system. ElasticSearch plugins must be compiled against the
version you intend to run with and currently the version is hardcoded
inside the SBT project file. Once I finished with the code, I will
create pre-built jar files.

I will probably work on it more once 0.16 is released. 0.16 is a
requirement due to changes in the river api, so for now you must build
against jars from the snapshot repo and deploy with a server built
from sources.

The mapping for the meetup example is far from complete. I actually
set a few fields to be stored/non-indexded.
