I am a newbie exploring Elastic Search and having hard time understanding how does Elastic Search handle data which is larger than the RAM size.
I am going through the documentations and it says to allocate 50% of your RAM size to Elastic Search. Also one of the documentation says to disable swapping.
As the swapping is disabled ,then how will Elastic Search get the data for a request which is not available in the RAM?
Any information on the working of the Elastic Search will be helpful.
