I have documents that appear to fail to be indexed / stored by Elasticsearch when I modify the mapping. The mapping as a gist
I am running Elasticsearch 5.5 and if I delete the mapping then the documents are indexed (document_type is "dstat") and a mapping is automatically created.
Since some of the values need to be numbers I copied the auto-created mapping and changed the two fields that are in fact numbers to type "integer".
Thereafter I delete the index and while the index is created no documents are indexed after deleting the index and updating the mapping.
Any idea what could be the problem?
