I am using Kibana (Version 4.3.1) for the first time.
I have an index with very large documents (5-15MB original size) and about 1300 fields (deep-nested structure). It has no timestamp field (so I un-ticked the respective box when adding the index).
I can create aggregations in the "Visualization" page, but when I try to use the "Discover" page, it displays "Searching" and nothing else, and then the page becomes unresponsive. The Search box shows the *.
A couple of times I have been able to enter some search term in the box, but then the page responded that it did not find any results.
In particular, the left panel "Selected fields" and "Available fields" does not show anything.
I suspect that the size of the documents is the problem here, because Kibana tries to load the complete _source (?). I noticed that I have free RAM left, but the CPU is at 100% most of the time.
Anybody has an idea what could be wrong and what I can do?
E.g. prevent Kibana to load the complete _source?
