Many types in single index vs multiple indices

(Erdinc Yilmazel) #1

Hi all,

I tend to think that having so many different type of documents within a
single index would not be the most optimal solution especially if these
types don't have a lot of overlapping fields. Would creating separate
indexes for different types have any positive or negative effect on
performance, scoring, storage or memory requirements? Basically how does 1
index X 10 types compare to 10 indices vs 1 type each ?
