Understanding Search Rate


I have roll over indexes, with retention duration of 7 days.

I can see search rate of 213/sec consistent across all session indexes. We have alias that points to these all roll over indexes.
But in some cases on Kibana the index with document count 0 , shows index rate of 213/sec

Can someone explain what is this actual search rate. Yes there is possibility that there is a script running in our cluster and using the alias.

Is it like even if the documents count is 0 still that many search request are hitting shards of that particular index

This is really an Elasticsearch question, so for a definitive answer I would suggest asking this question in the Elasticsearch forum.
