I'am using elasticsearch intensively to index statistics. Since most of
the requests will concern the last 2 months records and the volumetry will
be quite important (400 000 records/day), i'am considering to add a year
suffix to the index name, and use the template api.
example : curl -XPOST 'localhost:9200/statistic-2011/foo/' -d ...
Does it makes sense ? I'am wondering if this will optimize something or if
elasticsearch already doing these kinds of optimizations internally ?
