I'm having a complete nightmare with a new installation of M2.4.1 open source and elasticsearch.
I'm not sure I trust the Magento documentation because it all seems to reference 2.3+ and I understand 2.4 implementation is different; it's Elasticsearch or nothing apparently. So is it still relevant I ask myself.
I have circa 5,000 products in Magento and 8GB of RAM on the server. Seems the system is killing elasticsearch because it's chewing up all the RAM.
Does this seem right?
Maybe I just need to allocate more RAM to the cloud server but it's an expensive decision if it doesn't fix it.
Any help greatly appreciated - but be gentle, the whole concept of elasticsearch is new to me and I'm finding most of the documentation tells me what to do but not how. I have a million browser tabs open trying to cross-reference...
Elasticsearch will consume a lot of RAM in your machine and you will have to upgrade your RAM to make it work.
Hope this can help you! Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi @bruce_hazelton ,
I have faced the same problem. I tried this below solution and it works out for me.
In CMD, assign the values of your server and hostname.
Try these commands:
php bin/magento config:set catalog/search/elasticsearch7_server_port "port"
php bin/magento config:set catalog/search/elasticsearch7_server_hostname "hostname"
Hope this will help you!

@bruce_hazelton First of all, you need to check your current elasticsearch version and upgrade it to 7.x if it's not as 2.4 only supports 7.x.
Please refer this guide for other version matches - https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/install-gde/system-requirements.html
