Setup WPSOLR and Bonsai

From WPSOLR 21.3.

This video suppose you already have an account at Bonsai.io.

You will see how to create a Bonsai index with a few clicks.

 

What is Bonsai?

Bonsai is a service to host Elasticsearch indexes, the first of its kind. Rather than installing Elasticsearch on your own servers, you get a subscription and let the service manage your indexes on your behalf. No need of manpower, or servers, anymore.

Here is the video tutorial:

1 – Signup for a free trial at Bonsai

 

2 – Navigate to your Bonsai dashboard

 

3 – Create your first Bonsai cluster

3.1 – Set a name for your cluster

3.2 Select an AWS region (where your nodes/VMs will be deployed)

3.3 Select the Solr version

Elasticsearch version

3.4 Select a plan (the size of each node/VM)

Bonsai Elasticsearch: new cluster plan

Bonsai Elasticsearch: new cluster plan

The plan will determine the limits affected to your cluster (disk, shards, support, ….)

3.5 Create the cluster

Bonsai Elasticsearch: new cluster provisioning

Bonsai Elasticsearch: new cluster provisioning

Wait a few moments, until your cluster is ready to accept your first index.

 

3.6 Copy the cluster URL with the default access key/secret

4 – Create the Bonsai Elasticsearch index from WPSOLR admin

Here is the video tutorial:

  • (6) Set a name for you index, visible in WPSOLR admin
  • (7) Set a name for your index, visible in Bonsai Kibana admin (only letters and “_”, no whitespaces)
  • (8) Paste the Bonsai cluster url copied from the Bonsai console:

    Bonsai Elasticsearch: new cluster copy default endpoint

    Bonsai Elasticsearch: new cluster copy default cluster URL

  • (9) Set in how many shards (“pieces”) the index will be distributed (1 for a one node deployment)
  • (10) Set how many times each shard will be copied (1 for a one node deployment)
  • (11) Create the index
