Closed, ResolvedPublic4 Estimated Story Points


The elasticsearch cluster running behind should be upgraded to 6.8.23. Reasons are:

Note that after upgrading to 6.8 all the indices should be re-indexed so that they pick-up the most recent default index settings/mappings.

@dcausse (or anyone): do you have a timeline for WMF upgrades? I am considering this task for May, but if it blocks your work (or there is other good reason) then I would prioritize this earlier.

@Nikerabbit ideally we would like to have migrated all MW extensions depending on elasticsearch by may 13th so addressing this task in the first half of May would be ideal for us.

Thanks. Because we have an off-site coming up, I'm putting this in the current sprint already. @abi_ can you estimate this task?

[translatewiki@master] Update Elasticsearch to 6.8.23

I updated my local instance Elasticsearch from 6.5.4 to 6.8.23

  1. Disable translation memory by removing it from settings
  2. Remove Elasticsearch 6.5.4 by running sudo apt-get purge elasticsearch
  3. Grab Elasticsearch 6.8.23 deb file from
  4. Install: sudo dpkg -i elasticsearch-6.8.23.deb
  5. Enable auto-start: sudo /bin/systemctl enable elasticsearch.service
  6. Start Elasticsearch: sudo systemctl start elasticsearch.service
  7. Install wikimedia-search-extra plugin: In /usr/share/elasticsearch run sudo ./bin/elasticsearch-plugin install
  8. Install search-highlighter plugin: In /usr/share/elasticsearch run sudo ./bin/elasticsearch-plugin install
  9. Restart Elasticsearch - sudo systemctl restart elasticsearch.service
  10. Re-enable translation memory again
  11. Run php extensions/Translate/scripts/ttmserver-export.php from the MediaWiki core directory to bootstrap the translation memory

I did not see any issues, the update went smoothly, and I am getting suggestions from translation memory.

@abi_ can we consider this task done and close it so we can merge

Yes it can be reviewed and merged now. I am keeping this task open until the associated patches for workarounds and fixes we did on the fly during the upgrade are reviewed and merged.
