Nullify elasticsearch cache

Hi,

Is it possible to disable the elasticsearch cache per query (for testing
purposes) or nullify (zero) the cache when needed?

We want to deploy an environment with elasticsearch and compare
performances to our deployed lucene environment,

but we want to check if the elasticsearch results are influenced by cache.

Thanks, Ophir

You can clear caches using this command -
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/reference/api/admin-indices-clearcache/
However, I don't quite understand why would you want to do that.
Elasticsearch caches can significantly improve elasticsearch performance in
real life as well. I think a better solution would be to come up with a
more realistic test data and allow Elasticsearch to do its job as designed.
