I already asked about pagination of big ammount of data, but since last time I was trying to figure it out how I could reach my goal.
So I have only 500 users, which are going to make search requests. There will be 2-3 mil of documents.
In my opinion, number of users is not so big, 2-3 milions of documents in the world of indexing systems also seems to be not very impressive.
What I want to have is a pagination of sorted results. Sort will be done on _score and then on timestamp field.
Search will usually include 2, maybe 3 fields.
Everywhere I'm reading that this is bad idea to paginate sort results. I understand why it is a bad idea, but I have no idea how to resolve my problem. Scrolling may be an option because of small ammount of users, but this is not a real pagination.
So once again, I want to ask you, what could I read, where should I look for an answer for my question, how to implement properly pagination with sorting on score and timestamp fields?
I would like to add, that the documents will be changed only few days after creation of them. Documents which are ~1 week old, will not be changed, so maybe ES have special caching feature for such case?
