After upgrading to ES 2.1 I've noticed that the max_result_window now defaults to 10000 and throws an exception if it's exceeded. I understand the reasons behind this and was wondering if there is any other way to perform the following (without increasing the max_result_window setting);
- Perform a search across a set of 100k documents, with the results being paged. This is done using the 'from' and 'size' query settings.
- Click on any of the pages, with the results for that page being displayed. As it stands now this will throw an exception if the page exceeds the default result window.
The search needs to be ordered so using scan/scroll seems to be out of the question.
