Can bulk-index speed be faster in cluster-env than in single machine?

(guanyum) #1

hi guys,

i'm doing a test on bulk-index.

first, i indexed 1million docs into a single machine, with the bulk
size equals to 5000. the process finished in less than 6min, which is
quite good!

second, i moved to a cluster environment (5 machines, including the
machine in the first test), and the same bulk size, but the speed is
much slower, which runs 12.5min.

is there a way to make the index any faster? (at least the same as the
single machine test). as i plan to load 200million docs into a 10
machine cluster. the speed would become unacceptable if the index
takes to long.

ps, i have routing set in every single request.

any suggestions and advice would be appreciated, thanks!
