Facet returns different total at different times with the latest 0.90 release

Hello,

I have a strange problem. My query returns different results at different
times.
The query:
curl -XPOST localhost:9200/content/bb/_seach?pretty=1 -d '
{"query":{"match_all":{}},"facets":{"facet":{"terms":{"field":"country","size":10000,"order":"term"}}}}'

on the first go returns:

...
...
"facets" : {
"facet" : {
"_type" : "terms",
"missing" : 0,

  •  "total" : 7256,*
    "other" : 0,
    "terms" : [ {
      "term" : "albania",
      "count" : 1
    }, {
      "term" : "argentina",
      "count" : 4
    

...
...
On the second go, the same query returns:
...
...
"facets" : {
"facet" : {
"_type" : "terms",
"missing" : 0,

  •  "total" : 6948,*
    "other" : 0,
    "terms" : [ {
      "term" : "albania",
      "count" : 1
    }, {
      "term" : "argentina",
      "count" : 4
    

...
...

Please note the difference in the "total". Down the lines in the results, I
find differences in numbers for individual countries. I am not sure why. My
index is defined as:
Analyzer -
{
"index": {
"analysis": {
"analyzer": {
"string_lowercase": {
"type": "custom",
"tokenizer": "keyword",
"filter": "lowercase"
}
}
}
}
}

Mapping -

"bb" : {
    "properties" : {
        "content": {
            "type": "object",
            "properties":{
                "centroid":{
                    "type":"geo_point"
                  },
                 "categoryID": {
                       "type" : "string",
                       "index" : "not_analyzed"
                 },
            "address":{
                "type":"object",
                "properties":{
                    "country":{
                        "type":"string",
                        "analyzer": "string_lowercase"
                        },
                     "city":{
                        "type":"string",
                        "analyzer": "string_lowercase"
                        },
                    "postalCode":{
                        "type":"string",
                        "analyzer": "string_lowercase"
                        },
                   "houseNumber":{
                        "type":"string"
                        }
                    }
                }    
            }
        }        
    }
}

}

Any ideas why I get different results for the same query at different times?
The elasticsearch cluster is having two nodes running in Amazon Web Service.

thanks a lot for your help

Could it be possible that you're running into:

How many shards are in your index?

Hi Dan,

I have 5 shards in my index. I did not experience the problem with the
older version of the elasticsearch 0.20.5.

Is there any other workaround other then recreating the index with 1 shard?

Cheers,
Manish

Hi Manish,

Hi Dan,

I have 5 shards in my index. I did not experience the problem with the older version of the elasticsearch 0.20.5.

Is there any other workaround other then recreating the index with 1 shard?

The workaround suggested by Shay (I can't remember if it's in that issue, or whether it was in related discussion on the mailing list) was to increase the size parameter in your facet - multiply it by the number of shards, basically. So, in your example below, you'd ask for a size of 50,000 rather than 10,000, assuming 5 shards.

We've been using the 1-shard workaround to date. It's worked OK for us, but we do have time-based data (so a new index every week) and a relatively small cluster. If you aren't regularly creating new indices, or your cluster has relatively few nodes (so you'll end up with hotspots for indexing/search) then you'll probably want to try the facet size workaround.

If those don't work for you, then maybe you're not experiencing the problem described in the issue! (Especially as it used to work OK... we're still on 0.19.8).

Cheers,
Dan

Manish
