Will the size of the elastic search index decrease (and performance
increase due to reduce memory footprint) if I were to shorten field
I have many fields in index which have descriptive names (i.e.
“document_type”) and reading docs about other NoSQL databases is
appears that they store field names verbatim and as a result the size
of database greatly varies depending on the length of field name
(especially when number/length of fields are greater their value)
A common suggestion is to shorten the field name (i.e. make
“document_type” into “dt”) to address the problem. Would the same
suggestion apply to ElasticSearch?
