Versioning and memory usage


(Carlos Eduardo da Fonseca) #1

I was wondering: do versioning increases memory usage too much?

If yes, is there a way of disable versioning through configuration (.yml or
index settings)?

We have some low memory servers running elasticsearch so every memory usage
reduction is significative.

Versioning adds a negligible amount of memory. Most important memory
settings in elasticsearch are percentage of the allocated memory to the JVM,
so you should be good. Conserving more memory can be done by, for example,
using a single shard index instead of the default 5 shard index.
