Maximum limit for indexes

Hi,

I have a project which provides to brands monitoring their brand
names. I want to store data separately into different index for each
brand. Is there a limit for number of indexes with the Elastic Search
can real work? Will ES still work if i have 10k - 100k indexes? Each
index will have around 100k new rows every month.

I want to store data separately, beacuse we always select data only
for one brand and I want to use advantage of _open/_close index.

Thank you!

See this thread: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!searchin/elasticsearch/data$20flow/elasticsearch/49q-_AgQCp8/MRol0t9asEcJ, but in general, its pretty expensive to have many indices (even with one shard).

Could you elaborate a bit on the overhead of indices? A single
index-per-object is gives us a perfect setup for our dataflow, but how far
can this scale reasonably? Though we're starting out at ~20,000 indices,
I'd like to be able to plan for 1 million if possible.

If this isn't too far fetched, which is the more important scaling factor,
node size or node count?

Thanks,

That is indeed far fetched :slight_smile: Unless you plan on having hundreds of
thousands of servers...

However, filtered aliases might be what you are after.

I suggest taking a look at Shay's presentation at berlin buzzwords this
year:

Now that's the exact information I was looking for (specifically the
"user" dataflow section)!

Thanks!
