When I run the following query on my ElasticSearch instance:
I get this response:
I am concerned about the ram.percent. Here is explanation of what those values mean, but 73% looks like a lot. Do I need to be worried, and if yes what are the steps to take to prevent something bad from happening?
I have around 70 indexes. Smallest one is around 50kb (10 or more documents). The largest one is 800MB (around 700k documents). It is ELK stack, with default settings.
My AWS EC2 instance has i7CPU (equivalent), 64GB ram and SSD 500GB.
That was 3 days ago. Now my ram.percent rose to 85%. Nothing special, no special queries, just more documents in the indexes. I only use Kibana to search through the logs and detect issues which are normally not visible in normal logs.
Is something bad coming my way?
