Have a look at Elasticsearch
Closed, DeclinedPublic


MediaWiki and Phabricator supports Elasticsearch.

While we have no firm plan to implement it, elasticsearch seems to be a good stuff. Maybe we can (in the future) use it for high-traffic wikis and Phabricator.

I think the best course of action in this case would be to expand our current parsoid1 server and make it a misc3. We could host Elasticsearch and Collection there.

Parsoid, Collection and ES are all memory/cpu heavy services. Hosting them all on a small memory server seems a) unwise b) unreliable.

We looked at ES originally and decided resources v gain was little so unless the gain has increased in usage, I doubt the resources are there for it.

I'm still not convinced about the benefits of this. For new infrastructure there should be an identified benefit and identified user base and I don't think this really has either.

Search index in db* seems fine, disk intensive but fine.

@Southparkfan will probably have his yes/no on this fairly quickly.

Elasticsearch is definitely the best option, but not needed yet imho.
