Elasticsearch 7.11

Just a heads up on this one. They have changed how the heap memory is defined and managed:

Code:
################################################################
## IMPORTANT: JVM heap size
################################################################
##
## The heap size is automatically configured by Elasticsearch
## based on the available memory in your system and the roles
## each node is configured to fulfill. If specifying heap is
## required, it should be done through a file in jvm.options.d,
## and the min and max should be set to the same value. For
## example, to set the heap to 4 GB, create a new file in the
## jvm.options.d directory containing these lines:
##
## -Xms4g
## -Xmx4g
##
## See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/heap-size.html
## for more information
##
################################################################

It's no longer controlled by the jvm.options file, and if you server automatically restarts ES after the update (like one of my cPanel servers has just done), you'll probably run out of Memory!

On my server running my site, I previously had 1GB allocated to Java, with the new setup, it's restarted, and ballooned to RAM usage to attempt to use 50% (32GB!)

How to memory setup for Elastisearch?
What do you mean?

Doing some initial troubleshooting before I delve into the Elasticsearch logs and such.

Here are the typical error messages that I'm getting:
Code:

Today I installed 7.11.1 per the Ubuntu command line.

Next, I did a restart of Elasticsearch from the command line, using /etc/init.d/elasticsearch restart

After the cluster restarted, I ran a couple of commands, with the following output:

First, using the "curl" command to test connectivity to the server via port 9200, which seems to have checked out fine.

Code:
root@500eboard:/etc/elasticsearch/jvm.options.d# curl 127.0.0.1:9200
{
  "name" : "500eboard",
  "cluster_name" : "500eboard-xenforo",
  "cluster_uuid" : "2-NmRlvDRUurPKg6jmFjEA",
  "version" : {
    "number" : "7.11.1",
    "build_flavor" : "default",
    "build_type" : "deb",
    "build_hash" : "ff17057114c2199c9c1bbecc727003a907c0db7a",
    "build_date" : "2021-02-15T13:44:09.394032Z",
    "build_snapshot" : false,
    "lucene_version" : "8.7.0",
    "minimum_wire_compatibility_version" : "6.8.0",
    "minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "6.0.0-beta1"
  },
  "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"
}
root@500eboard:/etc/elasticsearch/jvm.options.d#

Next, I ran /etc/init.d/elasticsearch status to check the health of the cluster, which seems to be fine:

Code:
root@500eboard:/etc/elasticsearch/jvm.options.d# /etc/init.d/elasticsearch status

And finally, a check on Port 9200, which also seems to be OK:

Code:

Still no joy on the situation as to why the communication between the Elasticsearch engine is shutting itself down.

As a temporary Band-Aid, I created a cron job that runs every four hours, that restarts the Elasticsearch engine. This is working; the Elasticsearch server has now been "up" for about a day and a half with no errors (I rebooted the system because of a system update) and for about a day and a half before that.

No logged errors in the XF system console, and no users complaining about search not working.

Code:

Still, a lot of work to do to delve into the problem to find the root cause. Something in the latest Elasticsearch update to 7.11 (and now 7.11.1) exacerbated / accelerated the communication problem I was having with the server.

Your situation sounds pretty awful and it would annoy me like hell. Maybe just hire a server guru like Matt? So it gets fixed? It is not normal that it stops all the time. Running ES for over a year and not a single restart was needed so far. Lucky for me as I have no clue what I would do if I had your problem.

It is definitely possible to have a stable setup with a low memory limit. But it requires some configuring which may not act as expected all the time.

I agree. I think I need to have some with more server admin experience perhaps remove and re-install things. Thanks for the suggestion.
