Scaling experiments memory


Hi, I am trying to run a few experiments to understand scale better for my workload. One of the questions I had was how much memory is too small to understand scaling.

Let's say I have 3 nodes (running ES 2.3) each with 1GB RAM on 10GB SSD's and with about 2.5 million docs and 1 replica, I've noticed that the JVMMemoryPressure stays at around 70% which seems rather high. The problem is with this load the queries are taking much longer to complete i.e. much more latency.

Question: Does anyone have any pointers on how I should approach determining what is causing this latency?

I am guessing it's the memory pressure, but I am not sure how to understand the node stats metrics to see why there is so much JVMMemoryPressure.
