Bulk Index from Remote Host

We are planning to bulk insert about 10 Gig data ,however we are being
forced to do this from a remote host.
Is this a good practice? And are there any potential issues i should watch
out for?

any advice would be great

That's fine but you need to split your bulk into smaller bulk requests.
Don't send a 10gb bulk in one call! :slight_smile:

Hi,

The best way to approach this is to restrict the size of your bulk request
and / or the number of documents for each request.

I tend to do both, the best sizes seem to be in the 5 to 10 MiB range,
however, I also restrict (which isn't really necessary) the max number of
documents (e.g. 5000) for one request.

You should check out this link from the documentation:

David and Christopher, thanks for your advice, i did split the files into
12 MB chunks,which was found to be optimum after testing various sizes.
I wanted draw from your experience of potential issues, w.r.to bulk
indexing from local vs bulk indexing from remote.
i did choose to bulk index locally
