Elasticsearch

"Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful, free/open source search server based on Apache Lucene." Elasticsearch brings faster search, better search and some Natural Language Processing features.

It is interoperable with Tiki, starting in Tiki12.

1.1. Features enabled by Elasticsearch

1.2. How to configure

Configurable from tiki-admin.php?page=search
Configurable from tiki-admin.php?page=search

1.3. One server vs a cluster

Elasticsearch can be installed as a cluster of servers but can also run on the same server as Tiki. If you have a very high volume of content and have performance issues, you can install on a separate server, set up a cluster or get it as SaaS. You should not install Elasticsearch on a server that has a small amount of RAM (ex.: 1 gig)

1.4. Support matrix

.x means the latest release of that branch

Tiki Elasticsearch
19.x 2.x, 5.x and 6.x
18.x 2.x and 5.x (Sites with a lot of data require a fix from 2018-04-05 which requires 18.2 and Elasticsearch 5.x)
15.x 1.x and 2.x
12.x 1.x and 2.x


Since Elasticsearch automatically updates 2.x index to 5.x first time it starts - you can see some errors then. First time it rebuilds index might also show errors due to the automatic upgrade problems. However, once it builds the index on 5.x, then further rebuilds must not have errors. So, 2 index rebuilds after upgrade is the safest path to go.

1.10. Kibana

Kibana: https://www.elastic.co/products/kibana. Some installation notes:
I mostly followed these instructions but haven't got Logstash working yet, and I already had Apache installed so didn't use Nginx, but added this extra apache config file: /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_virtualhost_global.conf

# One of these blocks is probably redundant, and you need to make the htpasswd.users file yourself

    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Restricted Area"
    AuthUserFile /opt/kibana/config/htpasswd.users
    Require valid-user

Note: You need to get the right version of Kibana to match your version of Elastic, I am currently on Elastic 2.4 with Kibana 4.6

Other Notes:

  • “We only offer storage solutions with a minimum of four nodes. This allows for three total copies of data plus one server to handle failures. Since we deploy on bare metal, this means we're a bit monthre expensive for smaller clusters but they are also much faster than our competitors. We're also much much monthre affordable on the high end. Usually 30-50% less than our competitors for data at large scale."
