Elasticsearch Filters

Elasticsearch is an open source search and also analytics engine for all kinds of data. Which includes geo-spatial, numerical, textual, structured and unstructured texts. It receives raw data from various sources like logs, matrix, etc. This raw data is parsed, normalized, enriched and finally indexed in elasticsearch. Then, users can raise queries against their data. It collects the data belonging to each other into the index. In this blog post we are going to give the essential information regarding the elasticsearch filters and cover the topics like what is elasticsearch, why is elastic search, how to use elastic search and benefits of the elasticsearch.

What is Elasticsearch Filters

The bucket is the collection of documents which matches with associated filters. Every bucket is associated with a filter. In elasticsearch filter aggregation defines multi buckets. Filters can also be provided as an array of filters. When it receives requests which form in the form of buckets. They are filtered and those filtered buckets returned in the same order as in request. Its field is also provided as a filter array. Parameters are added in response with which the documents do not match the given filters. Those documents returns to the other bucket or in the same bucket named 

Even other parameters are also used to set key for those documents to give value other than default. When the process of collecting data starts. Documents are separated and formed into buckets. Each bucket flows through filters. While the process is going on the documents which are away from parameters of the given filter are identified. Those identified files are separated and transferred into other buckets or in the same as default. To avoid them from default, new parameters are formed to create keys for them then they are formed into the new bucket. The filters which we used frequently are caught by elasticsearch automatically.

Why Elasticsearch Filters

It stores the documents in the form of JSON each of them relate to one another. This index makes the documents searchable in real time and also helps the users during searching. It is good at full text search. It is also the platform for real time search.

It is known for its time sensitive use, it works fast with rapid results. By using it users can store, search and analyse the data in huge volume and in real time. With this we get rapid results because instead of searching text directly it searches index. It processes and gives back the data as a response in the form of JSON. Its power lies in the tasks distributed, searched and indexed across the cluster. The Cluster part which helps to store data is known as node. It allows users to make copies of the index that process is called replica.

How to use Elasticsearch Filters

Generally we need various assistants and applications for searching, storing, filtering, classifying, etc. But, do you ever think that there is a single application which does all those things for us with high speed? Yes, they are named as elasticsearch filters. To use it first we have to submit our text to elasticsearch then it receives our text. Then the text was stored into buckets. Buckets are the collection of documents. When the process is going on these buckets goes through filters which are given for filtering them.

While that process the documents which do not meet the parameters of that filter were identified. Those identified documents are separated from the bucket. Those documents are transferred to other buckets or in the same bucket as default. New parameters are created for those other documents to avoid them from being defaults. Then when we search for the particular topic then our text will be found within seconds. Those text is saved as index instead of saved as text. Because the index helps us a lot in exact results. And also in a short period of time. It filters and searches the exact result for us. Which saves us a lot of time.                                                 [ Realted article : ElasticSearch Tutorial ]

Benefits of Elasticsearch Filters:
  • Used for application search, which rely heavily on search for access and reporting of time.
  • Used for website search, which stores heavy text. Found useful for accurate searches. Steadily gaining place in the search domain sphere.
  • Used for Enterprise search, which allows search that includes documents search. Blog search, people search, etc. It replaced many search solutions of popular websites. We can gain great success in company intranet.
  • Logging and log analytics, which also provides operational insights to drive actions. Used for ingesting and analyzing data in real time.
  • Used for infrastructure metrics and container monitoring, many companies used it for various metrics to analyze. Which also includes gathering data, parameters which vary for different cases.
  • Used for security analytics, which access logs. Also concerns system security. In real time.
  • Used for business analytics, works like a good tool for business analytics. It includes learning the curve for implementing this product. Which is felt as a good feature by many organizations. It also allows non technical users, for creating visualization and performs analytical functions.
  • It has rebutted distributed architecture which helped a lot in solving queries. And data processing which is easy to maintain.

Drawbacks of Elasticsearch Filters:
  • It has the ability of searching when there is only the text presented only in data.
  • The syntaxes for queries made simpler and it has auto sharding.
  • The documents which they maintain are poor documents, not easy at the first contact. 
  • When we came to pricing it felt good at free trial. But there is a significant jump suddenly into other levels of paid services.
  • Difficult architecture to optimize. And also easier to understand its bottlenecks.
  • The encryption which we need is at rest. It has a penalty for performance when using the linked documents.
  • Sometimes to deal with it you need database knowledge.

Finally, companies found a great application for their maintenance. Which helps the organizations a lot in many necessary works. They are like searching, storing, filtering, and organizing into the index. The index is the best feature maintained by it. Because generally search engines save the text as the data presents. But instead it saves the data in the index. Which helps a lot while searching it gave accurate results. With in low time which also saves a lot of time. The requests made by customers and the result it gave as feedback is in the form of JSON. However, its special features gain its position in the market and even holds it in future as the best and useful application for the development of organizations.
