How do I handle mapping explosion?


#1

I understand that the default index number is 1000, and that increasing it can work in the short term, but is not a viable long term solution, especially if there is a spike in the ingestion of data.

I haven't seen any methods / workaround to this issue. What is the best way to handle explosion mapping? How do I do this?

Thanks

Are the mappings static or dynamic?

Some interesting things to note here also: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.1/mapping.html#mapping-limit-settings


#3

They are dynamic.

I did take a look at that link before, but it tells me how Elastic prevents explosion mapping. What I'm looking for is ways to work around this issue, apart from increasing the limit size
