Old Data Not Being Purged

(Sam J Weissman) #1


I am currently using ElasticCloud and have been attempting to modify my documents by performing the same bulk index calls I used to insert them the first go around.

I was under the impression that these index calls should just update documents with the same _ids ( which it appears to be doing ).

Unfortunately, where as my memory pressure/disk usage would previously drop (around 75%), it is now just continuously going up (up to 93% right now).

I do not have duplicate searchable documents, and I do see that the version of the documents I've touched have had their version numbers increased. So it seems like the "index" operations are correctly performing "updates".

However, being that memory/disk usage just keeps going up, my only explanation is that the older documents are not being purged from memory/disk.

Not really sure where to go from here outside of deleting the entire index and actually starting from scratch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
