    We have Elastic installed, but how do we know whether it is working ok or not?
    Is there some status information we can see?
    Also what happens if Elastic dies for some reason? Can the search be automatically be disabled and admin alerted?
    Can we also maybe see some stats?
    Thanks.

    Front End throws an error, there isn't an automatic alert.

    Really you would want to monitor it just like any other service on your server (like MySQL, memcached, web server, etc.)

    I've never had it crash on me though... My install has handled ~13.9M queries since the daemon started up.

    ...which you can see from the node detail was on June 3.

    Thanks but I didn't understand a word of that. The guys who wrote that assume a certain level of knowledge which I don't have. I don't even know what a cluster is, and don't really care to be honest. I just want the car to work. I don't care how it works.

    Yeah, that's pretty expensive. But maybe they could get in agreement with XF to include part of that in the ES add-on.

    Some basic statistics are included in XFES 1.1. Obviously we're not going for a full monitoring/configuration system here -- the statistics focus mostly on usage.
