Baseline memory requirements


(Andrei) #1

How much baseline memory is required by ES without considering what is
used for indices? Just as a test I set min/max to 8M/32M respectively
and indexed about 1000 small docs. Running top shows that resident
size is about 244M.

The min/max control the size of the JVM heap. The Java process itself
probably takes more, not sure about the numbers though...
