Getting Data In

What is the impact of increasing indexed_kv_limit in limits.conf?

Path Finder


Some of my data has 1000+ fields and I want to increase indexed_kv_limit value to 2000 from limits.conf .

I know it's a big increase since the default value is only 200. I want to know how this activity can impact my indexing or search performance?

I believe it'll cause additional disk usage (as more indexed fields will be stored in tsidx files) and slightly slower indexing rate (more fields to be extracted and stored). Searching would be faster if you're searching on those indexed field.
