Percolator inconsistent response times. (ES 1.3.1)


I am using ES 1.3.1. I have registered 2.8 million saved searches in a
dedicated percolator index, spread across 16 shards, 2 replicas and 8 nodes
(separate vm instances on separate physical hardware). If I run exactly
the same percolate request multiple times one after another or even
intermittently, it can take anywhere from less than 200ms to 5 seconds to
execute. Any ideas as to why such a variance in response times? If you
need additional information I'll be happy to provide it.

Thanks in advance,
