Most of the time, Elasticsearch does a great job, operating quietly behind the scenes to power thousands of applications. However, companies using Elasticsearch for mission-critical applications often experience severe problems such as outages, degraded performance, data loss, and security breaches, as operation keeps scaling these problems magnitude only increases.
Opster believes that generic monitoring tools that handle various systems can only serve as the basic layer, they are not enough to help companies in troubleshooting, automating operations and successfully running ES in production. Neither is transferring to a managed ES service that has many limitations and disadvantages on running mission-critical applications.
Opster has taken a different approach to assisting companies with what's needed to run ES in production and it just recently released its cool Elasticsearch Health Check-Up (Beta) It analyses ES configuration based on JSON’s to detect problems and provide actionable recommendations that can help improve performance. The process takes only 2 minutes and requires no installation.
