Variable memory size


(ashu raikvar) #1

HI,
i am new to ES so my questions are dumb and simple.i indexed around
4000 docs from database and i experimented with index size and number
of documents indexed the Es head is showing variable result summary
is down below
1st run
index_name-movies1;index_size=2.7mb;docs_indexed=2345
2nd run
index_name-movies2;index_size=1.7mb;docs_indexed=1700;
my idea was to understand memory usage by indexing same data(from
database).
my question is why i am getting two different index_size(both memory
and doc wise) while indexing same data?
