Optimize


(Rafael Almeida) #1

Hello,

I want to know when and if I should manually call optimize on
elasticsearch. This blog seems to say it's a bad idea:

However, there must be a reason for optimize to be exposed in the rest api.

Hi,

Calling optimize manually is indeed highly discouraged in general.

The only time when you might want to run optimize manually is on read-only
indices. For example it happens frequently when managing time-based
indices, eg. once index per day: only one index is going to get writes and
the other ones are read-only, so they can be safely optimized.
