We are using the python library to index documents into ES and sometimes we get the following error:
elasticsearch.exceptions.ConnectionTimeout: ConnectionTimeout caused by - ReadTimeoutError(HTTPConnectionPool(host='localhost', port=9200): Read timed out. (read timeout=10))
The connection with python we use is:
es.index(index="lcm_db", doc_type='host', body=document, timeout='20s')
So not sure why it times out with 10 when we are specifying 20s, I guess I'm missing something very simple, but can't think what it is.
