WARNING: Version 5.6 of Elasticsearch has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
Frequently used aggregations (e.g. for display on the home page of a website) can be cached for faster responses. These cached results are the same results that would be returned by an uncached aggregation — you will never get stale results.
See Shard request cache for more details.
