Limits of Elastic Search


(Ashwin Sathya) #1

It is a newbie question, please bare with me.

Is there an upper limit to number of indices ? number of types in an index ? number of documents in a type ?

Is it solely dependent upon the disk size available ?

Thanks,
Ashwin Sathya

Nope, there are no hard limits. The number of all indices/types/documents
is all dependent on your particular setup (data + hardware). Some people
run one index with millions of documents, other people use hundreds of
time-based indices based, etc etc.

Indexes carry a certain amount of overhead, so it probably isn't efficient
to create thousands of indices even though it is technically possible.
