I have been making use of scripted metrics to find the latest document inside a traditional transform.
The new "Latest" document transform offering works to work really well and is dead simple to use!
Question - would the "latest" transform running with high frequency, every 1s, cause reduced load on the cluster compared to using scripted metric in a normal transform? I would expect it has been designed to, but would be great to hear from the Elastic team on this one.
Thanks in advance.
