Elasticsearch 1.7.0 Released


Well-known member
I had an update crash Elasticsearch for me. It was from 2.2.0 to 2.2.1, and the cause turned out to be one of the plugins, which I had to manually upgrade. Once I did that, it's been running nicely again. That is one thing to check if ES fails to restart after an upgrade.

Thankfully, monit alerted me to the failed process, and I had search back online within 10 minutes. Prior to that, it ran for a couple of months.

But just before that, it was dying on us every 24-36 hours, and I would need to restart. I finally traced that back to a bad Java upgrade. Once a new Java version came along, it all stabilized again. Now I cringe every time I need to upgrade Java (which I still dislike with a passion...).
