I just started using elasticsearch and kibana this week.
Here is the document count of my index (day based):
-> curl localhost:9200/_cat/indices/squid-2016.05.15*?v
health status index pri rep docs.count docs.deleted store.size pri.store.size
yellow open squid-2016.05.15 5 1 9039596 0 7.1gb 7.1gb
Here is what Kibana shows:
So why the difference in the count/hits? Notice the search bar in kibana does not have any query. I was expecting to see 9039596 hits but I see 9703102.
Can someone please help.
