I am using ElasticSearch for a few months in a project. The simplicity and
power it has is.. really amazing.
On this project we are using a VPS to host a normal LAMP stack +
The problem is the memory usage.
Without anything the server is using: (cumulative values)
With MySQL: 159 MB
With Apache: 216 MB
With ES: 650~700MB
The thing is I'm only indexing around 10k documents. My config file (running
as a service) is:

I've checked and the server is started with the correct memory
configuration, but still after a couple of hours, 2-3 days the memory usage
just goes over the top and the server crashes.
So I need to be constantly restart the elastic search service.
I'm running a CentOS on a VPS with a limit of 1GB. Any more thing you would
like to know ask please.
Even tough this is nothing VERY serious right now, I'm worried that with
traffic spike the server would crash/restart very quickly. Can you help me?
