Monitoring indices take ~75% of request number

I'm using Elastic Cloud service and realize that there are many system indices are running together with my index.

Does it slow down search speed to my search indices or have any affect to my instance since search rate is quite high ?
As you can see from screenshot, 3 monitoring indices have 2.7 requests/s
while my search *-search indice just has 2.33 request/s in reality.

Hi there,

Monitoring uses index patterns to limit its searches to only the monitoring-specific indices. Likewise, Kibana's apps such as Discover and Visualize use index patterns to limit their searches to the indices you're concerned with (which will typically exclude system indices like those Monitoring uses). In both cases, this means that only the indices captured by the index pattern will play a role in search speed. Does this answer your question?
