After looking through the release notes for the Elastic Search 1.0 version, I wanted to take a look at implementing the GeoHash grid aggregation. For those unfamiliar with the concept of a GeoHash and since I’m more of a visual learner, I’d take a quick look at this post to get up to snuff on the concept or keep reading and I’ll regurgitate an example below
While on a project where we were using ElasticSearch pretty extensively we had a major problem with intermittent test failures. You know, the best kind of test failure. The kind of failure that makes people stop running tests, disable certain tests, blame quality software like ElasticSearch. Oh the pain of non-deterministic failures.
