Elasticsearch has been around for a while now, and it can be found in quite a lot of different websites nowadays. This book reviewed here aims to cover both the fundamentals of using elasticsearch, as well as the advanced usage, scaling and performance optimisation of elasticsearch in production.In order to do this, the book is mainly divided in two distinct parts named "Core functionality" and "Advanced Functionality", but there are also another six chapters at the end as appendices.So let's take things in order, as is also the recommended way of getting through the book, and start with the first part of the book. There are eight different chapters, covering all of the core functionality of elasticsearch. In these chapters the reader can find out about what kind of search problems can be solved, some typical use cases, understanding the meaning of documents, types, indices, shards and clusters. Following this, there is a thorough explanation about indexing, updating and deleting data. Another chapter is dedicated to searching the data with match and filter queries as well as using the best query for the specific job required. Analysing the data using analyzers, tokenizers and token filters with special sections about ngrams, edge ngrams, shingles and stemming, follows next. How scoring works and a description of the different scoring methods as well as boosting is described in the next chapter. The first part finishes off with two chapters about aggregations (metrics, multi-bucket and nesting aggregations) and the different ways to describe relationships (nested, parent-child etc) between documents.The second part of the book, as mentioned previously, is dedicated to the advanced usage, scaling and performance in production.
