What is Elasticsearch?
Elasticsearch is the fastest search engine that returns the results for the entered query in real-time. Elasticsearch is actually a highly scalable open-source full-text search and analytics engine. It allows you to store, search, and analyze big volumes of data quickly and in near real time.
Why is it Used?
Suppose, that we are searching a word “Apple” on our local SQL database. It will surely be a time-consuming process as all the data will be checked through for finding the word “Apple”. But, if we make use of the Elasticsearch and put all of our catalog data in the Elasticsearch server it would for sure return us with the IDs’ of the products having the “Apple” word associated with them. Thus narrowing-down the search results for us and in turn providing faster search results.
After the successful installation of the extension, the admin will configure the module for use. The admin will have to enable the elastic server, and enter the URL of the elastic server with its port number. After this, the admin will have to run start command on the server to start the elastic server that enables two options – Upload Data on Elastic Server and Remove all Data from the Elastic Server. After uploading the data, click the Save Configuration button to save the changes.
- Enable the Elastic Server
- Enter URL and Port Number for the Elastic Server
- Start the Elastic Server
- Upload/Remove the Data on Elastic Server
