That can not be the normal way. My Sphinx didn't crash until now. I run the ES since it was released here on XF.
We'd occasionally get those hiccups with Sphinx also--not a big deal since reindexing was way faster than rebuilding indexes using XF/ES in tandem. But like you say, maybe once or twice a year it would happen. On our old server, I could rebuild indexes in maybe 15-20 minutes, and it could use the command line. XF/ES? Well over an hour for millions of posts, and this is on our new server. And as much as Java and/or ES fails, there's no way I'd recommend using it in a production environment. The key is this: sure, it may work fine on someone else's server, but it's how it works on OUR server that matters. And on our server, ES (and Java in general) are a failure.Yeah, it crashes. I have monit and a cron to keep it alive.
But Sphinx wasn't foolproof, either. Mine would go belly up about once every six months when it tried to reindex. It would just get stuck on the old index and ignore the deltas. I'd have to log in, delete the indices, and rebuild.
I honestly think you might have something misconfigured.BTW, one other thing I noticed in regard to speed: ES is very slow. On our private testing forum, it ran quite well using XF's built in search. Once I enabled the ES add-on, it now takes several seconds for a post to be accepted.
That's entirely possible. But, I'm doing the same thing you are basically--I just use a standard ES setup, allocating more than enough memory to accommodate it. To me, running ES on Java is inefficient--it's the same idea as running a second operating system in a virtual machine on your main OS. I have always disliked Java. In light of all of the recent security breaches in the browser Java VMs, I am far from confident of wanting to fire up Java on our server. Granted it is apples and oranges (or servers vs. browsers), but Java has been a perennial unwanted annoyance IMHO, much like Flash.I honestly think you might have something misconfigured.
