I've just installed the whole ELK stack for my company and now I am running into some problems, mainly if a query takes too long it will just bring my ES servers to their knees likely resource starvation.
I see that kibana.yaml has the following (default) settings:
# Time in milliseconds to wait for responses from the back end or elasticsearch. # This must be > 0 request_timeout: 300000
AFAIK this request timeout value should be set on each search to ES as a timeout paramenter, but still I don't see it in elasticsearch request body. (On a dashboard looking at the request for a graph). Am I missing something?
