Using schemaless mode and post command in SOLR

avatar
Cesar Capillas Apr 02, 2018

In SOLR 6.6 the data_driven_scheme_configs configset is able to implement the features of the so-named Schemaless mode. This mode is a set of features that allow users to construct an effective schema by simply indexing sample data, without having to manually edit the schema. In the following examples, I'm using SOLR Cloud 6.6 setup and collection API. $ cd /opt/solr6/solr-6.6.0/ $ ./bin/solr create -c gettingstarted -shards 1 -replicationFactor 2 -p 8983 -d......

SOLR client APIs

avatar
Cesar Capillas Mar 26, 2018

In SOLR, you may find different client APIs for your favourite programming language such as Java, Python, Ruby, Perl or Javascript. Basically, client apps can reach Solr by creating HTTP requests and parsing the corresponding HTTP responses, encapsulating much of the work of sending requests and parsing responses, and making easier to write client applications. If you are a java programmer you will be confortable with SorlJ , while you can use pysolr  or rsolr libs, for Python and Ruby......

Using the editorial marker field in SOLR elevation component

avatar
Cesar Capillas Mar 15, 2018

One of the nice features of SOLR is the ability for doing promoted or recommended searches.  With this feature, you can basically use a kind of query (elevation query), that is able to elevate static searches configured by id. Use case example: Imagine that you have a popular Alfresco blog in your site, and you want that when searching for term "alfresco blog", your first or  just a "recommended page" is the solutions page. In elevate.xml:

Playing with SOLR Cloud and REST API

avatar
Cesar Capillas Mar 06, 2018

Last days I've been involved in an enterprise search project based on Apache Nutch and Apache SOLR projects. As you probably know, SOLR is a powerful enterprise search and index engine with a powerful REST API, which exposes its features as query, index, delete, commit and optimize, and also including a very useful admin interface. Web applications developed in any programing language (such as Java, .NET, Python, or Ruby), can easily call this REST API and perform SOLR operations, which are......

Analyzing Tomcat log access data with Docker ELK resources

Cesar Capillas Feb 09, 2018

In last Alfresco Devcon, I presented some basic configuration for Alfresco monitoring with Elastic stack (ELK). A very nice automated setup for testing this configuration in ELK 6.1 is via the docker compose setup given in this github project: $ git clone https://github.com/deviantony/docker-elk $ cd docker-elk This is an opportunity of checking Elastic Stack new features in 6.1 version, for example the new Kibana homepage, some UI accesibility new features, the dashboard full screen mode,......

Back to Bilbao from Alfresco Devcon 2018. Many years participating in Alfresco events, connecting with old friends, collaborating with Alfresco Community and learning the new dominating technologies surrounding Alfresco for the upcoming years such Docker, Kubernetes, ADF, AWS or microservices.  What to say... I enjoyed a lot with many of the presentations, and it was a pity I could not attend to others. I liked a lot Michael Suzuki's Alfresco Reporting and Analytics, and Luis Cabaceira &......

More on monitoring dashboards for Alfresco using SOLR, Banana and Apache Zeppelin

avatar
Cesar Capillas Jan 08, 2018

In the previous posts I talked about ELK stack for monitoring Alfresco . But another possibility for loading metrics or logs information, extracted by logstash, is a SOLR index server (instead of Elastic Search), which is part of Alfresco architecture by default, and in principle, it would seem more natural for indexing our Alfresco logs and metrics. Besides, there exists some ports for Kibana in SOLR, such  Banana or Silk , that may be deployed in our SOLR dedicated instance. Basically, you......

Kibana dashboard for monitoring Alfresco Community via OOTB Support Tools

avatar
Cesar Capillas Dec 26, 2017

Some weeks ago I wrote a post about how to set up a basic Kibana dashboard representing System Performance and Active Sessions in Alfresco Enterprise via JMX metrics from a logstash JMX input. As you probably know, no such Alfresco JMX objects are available in Alfresco Community, such as active sessions (only the java and catalina objects are available). Anyway, it is possible to obtain a similar dashboard using the relevant information from a webscript, for example, the JSON-based webscripts......

Kibana dashboard for monitoring Alfresco JMX metrics

Cesar Capillas Nov 12, 2017

This weekend  I read in Elastic blog that Mr. Robot uses Kibana for monitoring the Dark Army , so I decided to write a post about a recent monitoring project for representing some basic (but interesting) Alfresco JMX metrics in a clustered environment, in which I was involved last week. As you probably know, Kibana is a useful tool of the ELK stack, composed by Elastic Search as indexing backend, Logstash for data extraction, and the cited Kibana for graphic representation of the extracted......
