How much memory must my server have to manage 50000 documents?

What about cpu storage and network?

Thanks for helping.

Hi @Isi,

provided that the documents are small, the documents are not going to require a lot of memory. You will likely be able to fit everything into memory with just a few GB RAM.

For storage, you typically want to leave some free space for merging.

CPU, network and memory for request handling depends mostly on ingestion rate and search complexity and rate.

I would advice you to simply try it out and play around with it. For instance, storage, you can easily spin up Elasticsearch as a trial in our cloud or simply download Elasticsearch and try it out locally. Then see how much disk space is in use.
