Disabling cache


(Adrian Gaudebert) #1

Hi,

Is there a way to totally disable cache in ElasticSearch? To make sure every
query runs as if it was the first time? I would need it to run some
performance tests.

Thanks!

Which caches are we talking about? The field data cache (the one for facets
/ sorting) is expensive to build, so running a performance tests without it
will bring the system to a crawl... (makes little sense to run it). The only
other cache in elasticsearch is the filter cache, which you can disable by
setting: index.cache.filter.type to none.
