Import the module:
>>> import pyes
pyes is able to use standard http or thrift protocol. If your port starts with “92” http protocol is used, otherwise thrift.
For a single connection (which is _not_ thread-safe), pass a list of servers.
>>> conn = pyes.ES() # Defaults to connecting to the server at '127.0.0.1:9500' >>> conn = pyes.ES(['127.0.0.1:9500'])
>>> conn = pyes.ES(['127.0.0.1:9200'])
Connections are robust to server failures. Upon a disconnection, it will attempt to connect to each server in the list in turn. If no server is available, it will raise a NoServerAvailable exception.
Timeouts are also supported and should be used in production to prevent a thread from freezing while waiting for the server to return.
>>> conn = pyes.ES(timeout=3.5) # 3.5 second timeout (Make some pyes calls and the connection to the server suddenly becomes unresponsive.) Traceback (most recent call last): ... pyes.connection.NoServerAvailable
Note that this only handles socket timeouts.
