Chce types

Hi,

I am not sure and can find it nowhere. Is there any description of cache
types ? I mean what do 'resident', 'soft', 'weak' mean and how do they work?

Best regards.

Hi Marcin,

Here's a really good article about ES caching:

Sorry, I accidentally hit send :frowning:

So, the article:

It tells quite a lot of how caching works in ES. For example, about soft
caches:
"ElasticSearch uses Google Guava libraries to implement its cache. The *soft

  • type wraps cache values in soft references, which means that whenever
    memory is needed garbage collector will clear those references even when
    they are used. This means that when you start hitting heap memory limit,
    the JVM wont throw OutOfMemory exception, but will instead release those
    soft references with the use of garbage collector. More about soft
    references can be found at:

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/lang/ref/SoftReference.html"
Best regards,
Radu
