Your usage is indeed low, so there's no alerts to be sent. The
email address in the system was Nathan's, as he was the previous
owner of the app, but I've no updated to be yours (in line with
Heroku's provided details).
The indexed data is the disk usage - so, you're currently
sitting on about a quarter of a MB.
Redundant servers are fallback servers for when the primary
servers go offline unexpectedly - it makes it much faster to
recover, as they're sitting there waiting and ready (otherwise
general recovery time is usually somewhere between 30 and 60
minutes, unless there's a major outage with the Flying Sphinx
hosting provider, which is Amazon - in those situations, it could
be longer). That said, server crashes are rare, and in some cases,
30 to 60 minutes downtime, while never ideal, is not a deal
There's no automatic updates for versions of Sphinx, nor any
notifications. I have thought a little bit recently about being
more pro-active with managing Sphinx versions, but it would require
significant changes to the way Flying Sphinx currently manages
things, so I don't see any changes happening in the near
Re-indexing is available for all plans - it's only delta indices
(which are useful for near-real-time updates) that require more
resources, hence why that's not available on the Wooden plan.
If you've any further queries about this, do let me know.
