TTL and file handles


(electic) #1

Hi,

I have the latest version of ES. I have created an index with a TTL of 5h.
I noticed over time the file handles keep increasing and increasing. Is
this normal? I have changed the file-max of the machine but it seems to be
growing pretty steadily. With a TTL, isn't the file handles supposed to
stay constant? Or are the deletes creating more and more sparce files that
require a merge?

Any help on how to make this more robust with a TTL is greatly appreciated.

Yes, deletes are only marked as deleted, and eventually get merged out.
