Will adding filters make visualizations more responsive?

We have a visualization where we are using the term aggregation. Suppose there are 10000 records in the source index and out of that 1000 records have the field on which we will be doing term aggregration.

I am just wondering if we put in filters in the visualization top bar to filter away 9000 records will it make any difference in the responsiveness of the visualization? Or behind the scene that optimization will be done anyways and I need not bother.

Yes it will help, because filtering in Elasticsearch is super efficient.

However for your 10000 records, I can't imagine it'd be hugely impactful.

Thanks for confirmation. The numbers were just to simplify. We are dealing with much larger number here. :slightly_smiling_face:
