I understand from reading up through forum that ES will use more than actually the Heap Max. On our systems we see that if its given 32Gig of Max Heap. It slowly keeps increasing and consumes a lot more than 32Gig.
So Is there a way to limit the maximum RES memory ES will use? Are there any breakers to configure its behaviour? If we do limit via Cgroup mechanism, it will cause of OOM killing of the process.
I believe the circuit breakers control how to manage in-heap allocations. But trying to see how the system memory usage beyond heap can be limited.
