I'm currently working on implementing ElasticSearch on a Django-based REST
API. I hope to be able to search through roughly 5 million documents, but
I've struggled to find an answer to a question I've had from the beginning:
how many fields is too many for a single indexed object?
My setup has 512MB of storage and 4GB of memory, 1 shard, and 2 nodes.
I want to be able to sort/filter on about 30 different fields for that
single model, but only search on 5-6. Is 30 fields too many?
I have a dev environment set up with roughly 30,000 documents and the same
number of fields, and updates and queries are taking significantly longer
than I had hoped. Updating a single document is taking between 4-5
seconds, and searching for a 5-character long string is taking 3-4 seconds.
Is there hope that this is a configuration problem, or should I reconsider
how many fields I'm using? Thanks in advance.
