Subject [jira] [Created] (NUTCH-1445) Add ElasticIndexerJob that indexes to elasticsearch
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 14:14:02 GMT
Ferdy Galema created NUTCH-1445:

             Summary: Add ElasticIndexerJob that indexes to elasticsearch
                 Key: NUTCH-1445
             Project: Nutch
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Ferdy Galema
             Fix For: 2.1

We have created a new indexer job ElasticIndexerJob that indexes to elasticsearch. It is orginally
based upon (Apache2 license), but
we have modified it greatly to make it integrate as good as possible into Nutch. The greatest
modification is that documents are asynchronously flushed in bulk to elasticsearch.

Elasticsearch rocks. Both performance and ease of confiugration is awesome. You simply deploy
a server by unpacking the tar, configure the clustername, start the server and fire away indexing
requests. Indices are automatically created. Fields are automapped. (Of course it is recommended
to create your own optimized mapping, but that is beyond scope of this issue). Multiple servers
connect without extra configuration, simply by using the same clustername. (By means of multicast).
There a tons of advanced options, such as sharding, replication, disk striping etc.

To give an example of the performance: With 20+ nodes we are able to index over 1M docs (average
sized webdocuments) per minute. The best part is that the added documents are almost instantly
searchable, so there no hidden commit costs that Solr has. This is with out-of-the-box configuration.

(I will attach patch and commit for Nutch2. Feel free to adapt for trunk.)
