Any way to not sync translog to disk continually?


(Nick Tarleton) #1

For a large, offline bulk index build, or for testing, is there any way to
have ElasticSearch not fsync() the translog to disk constantly? (I assume
that's what it's doing, from observation)

You can set index.gateway.local.sync setting to -1.
