I want to use Algolia search like the default search and disable Elasticsearch but when I run reindex, it shows a bug like this:

Catalog Search index process error during indexation process: Could not ping search engine: No alive nodes found in your cluster


I use Magento 2.4.5. Do I need to worry about it?

Thank you so much!

Yes, of course. Catalog Search index is at least used for product listing in both backend and frontend, so you should fix this issue by config the Elasticsearch.

  • Looks like you still misunderstood, in both cases: whether you use Algolia Search or not, you still need Elastichsearch because other features require Elasticsearch: for instance: product listing in the category page and product grid in the Category edit page while Algolia ONLY supports "search" features: instant search in mini search, search result page.

  • In case you want to disable Elasticsearch engine, you can use this module: github.com/zepgram/module-disable-search-engine

1). Please ensure that configuration of indexing queue as per the document https://www.algolia.com/doc/integration/magento-2/how-it-works/indexing-queue/?client=php

2). Can you please try to reindex with algolia cli commands and check for reindex
