for my current task it would help me to have a large
position_increment_gap on some fields. These fields may each contain 100 values or more.
My question is:
How (severely) does increasing
position_increment_gap impact the performance (i.e. search speed and memory usage)? For example when increasing
position_increment_gap to 500, 1000 or higher.
I observed that it increases the index size, but I couldn't find any other information on the performance impact.
I'm fairly new to Elasticsearch and this forum, so if this is very obvious or the information is easy to find, please forgive me. If this is the case I would be very thankful if you could tell me where I can find more information on this topic.
Thanks in advance for your help!
