About this event

Lithium Technologies will host & feed us! Thank you! Please make sure you read the "how to find us" or you won't be able to get in. If you have a bicycle, you may bring it up. 

Marc Harrison from Lithium Technologies will discuss lessons learned while switching to elasticsearch as the reporting analytics engine surfacing hit level metrics (page views, posts, etc) backing Lithium Social Intelligence.  Focus on faceting and bulk loading.  

Once again we will get core Elasticsearch developers (Rashid and Andrew) to talk and do Q&A. 

Andrew Selden (Elasticsearch developer): "One of the most frequent questions users of Elasticsearch have is how to size a cluster. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, it is possible to make meaningful decisions with the right empirical information. The new benchmarking API is a useful tool that can help answer this question by providing a standard mechanism for submitting queries and measuring their performance under different scenarios. This talk will go over how to use the /_bench API to measure query performance under different conditions and how to interpret the results."

Rashid Khan (Elasticsearch developer), aka Kibana dude, will talk about... Kibana. 

Kyle and Nick from onemorecloud.com will talk about their experience running ES as a Heroku service. Kyle Maxwell and Nick Zadrozny from onemorecloud.com: "I think we actually have some stuff worth talking about.  While we can do a compare/contrast between Solr/ES, I think people will also be interested in a behind the scenes of the new logging infrastructure we're doing with kinesis, ES, and websockets."
