This is my first post in the community. I've been following this forum over the last months as I started to use more and more Elasticsearch on my day to day. I've been using Elasticsearch to store data from several tools or services, and it has been working really well.
Most of the schemas of my own indexes are quite simple, and there are other external services that return me really big/complex objects, which I've been storing in Elastic without any problem at all.
Since I've never had any problems with this, I never spent too much time around mappings, etc.
However, the last script I developed (a website monitor) returns a bigger object, and I would like to storeit on Elastic.
Since this structure is a little bit more complicated that all the others, this time I've had to manually define certain object types in the mapping, since Elastic ended up defining different types that I actually wanted.
The first days I used this index I had no problem at all, however, at this moment if I try to query the last 15 days, Kibana hangs and the Chrome Tab ends up crashing. Bear in mid that I only have like 15 total objects on the index, so i rule out any thing related with the volume of data.
Therefore, the only thing that occurs to me is that perhaps i'm not following a specific Elastic best practice or something similar that is causing Elastic/Kibana to not being able to deliver me the information I want...
- Is there a problem using multiple arrays of jsons inside of the object?
- Is there any chance, an _ignored field be the root cause of all of this?
Hopefully this all makes sense.
