We had slowness, but didn't know where. We quickly would find out if it was the network, database, app server, webserver, or otherwise. They don't like me saying this, but it's a great "finger-pointer".

Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is extremely well suited for structured (faceted) search, full-text search, and analytics workloads. Elasticsearch and the ELK stack are also a good fit for operations teams that want to be able to interrogate their logs in an online (read: fast) query tool. Elastic is amazing at creating super fast search experiences over very large datasets, where traditional RDBMS systems are either too costly or too slow.

Pros

  • The user interface is brilliant, especially the map showing the flow of network traffic between your various pieces of hardware being monitored.
  • Easy to identify slow running queries.
  • Quick and easy to set up.

  • Configuration. Looking forward to seeing Elasticsearch detecting hardware specs and self-adjusting its config.
  • The lack of _changes streams. They were promised to appear in 2.0...
  • The price of the hosted solution could be lower.

We're pretty heavily invested in ElasticSearch at this point, and there aren't any obvious negatives that would make us reconsider this decision.

To get started with Elasticsearch, you don't have to get very involved in configuring what really is an incredibly complex system under the hood. You simply install the package, run the service, and you're immediately able to begin using it. You don't need to learn any sort of query language to add data to Elasticsearch or perform some basic searching.If you're used to any sort of RESTful API, getting started with Elasticsearch is a breeze. If you've never interacted with a RESTful API directly, the journey may be a little more bumpy. Overall, though, it's incredibly simple to use for what it's doing under the covers.

Do not mix data and master roles. Dedicate at least 3 nodes just for Master

Alternatives Considered

I didnt like any of the functionality or the layout this application provided. I saw the growth with AppDynamics and the possible potential mainly because we have visibility to the actual application code. This is one of the best options by far to ensure the vendor fixes bugs in the code.

Cassandra and Solr are other products that I haven't used but might be considered "competitors". Splunk is very, very good in terms of search but it seemed limited to logging. It is also quite pricey compared to ElasticSearch which is free.
