Timestamp field support added in master branch


(Benjamin Devèze) #1

Just a quick one to let you know that we have added the support for a
timestamp field.

If you want to play with it and test it you can find more details about it
here: https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/1285

It may seem a little addition but it will hopefully open the way to new cool
features like ttl per docs, rolling indices...

Great job.

How do the timestamps work in a distributed setup when not-externally
defined? Time can be different between servers. I have seen system
issues because two machines were 8 seconds apart! Might be a
non-issue since the use cases where a failure might occur are very
few.

The timestamp is "taken", if not defined, on the clustered node. So, time
should be sync'ed (up to you to what degree) between the nodes when relying
on automatic timestamp.
