we are using the Http Api to talk to ES. Yesterday we tried to write a couple of thousand events to our DEV-environment ES but after the first few thousand we reproducibly get a 500 server error. I took a look at our logs and found entries containing the phrase “Error: CommitTimeout” at the time of the errors.
Now there could be different reasons for this error:
we are using a january version of ES, if it was an error in ES it could be already fixed in the current RC2
I’m not sure, but from the logs it looks like the error has something to do with projections which are still in beta
BUT: everything worked fine on our local DEV machines so I pretty sure the problem is related to how our DEV server is configured: our ES database files are located on a network share, which feels wrong. I would like to change that, but I’m not sure this will be possible, due to organizational guidelines.
Did somebody have a similar error or do you have any ideas what could have caused it?
Thanks in advance!
