Sensu is an open source monitoring event pipeline. Try it today.

Back by popular demand!  Sematext engineers Radu Gheorghe and Rafal Kuc are returning to Berlin Buzzwords next Tuesday, June 2, with the second installment of their “Side by Side with Elasticsearch and Solr” talk.  (You can check out Part 1here.)

Elasticsearch and Solr Performance and Scalability

This brand new talk — which will include a live demo, a video demo and slides — will dive deeper into into how Elasticsearch and Solr scale and perform. And of course, they will take into account all the goodies that came with these search platforms since last year.

Radu and Rafal will show attendees how to tune Elasticsearch and Solr for two common use-cases: logging and product search.  Then they will show what numbers they got after tuning. There will also be some sharing of best practices for scaling out massive Elasticsearch and Solr cluster; for example, how to divide data into shards and indices/collections that account for growth, when to use routing, and how to make sure that coordinated nodes don’t become unresponsive.

Not going to Berlin Buzzwords?  No problem — watch this space for the video and slides soon…
