The following expert settings can be set to manage global search and aggregation limits.
(Static, integer) Maximum number of clauses a Lucene BooleanQuery can contain. Defaults to
This setting limits the number of clauses a Lucene BooleanQuery can have. The default of 1024 is quite high and should normally be sufficient. This limit does not only affect Elasticsearchs
boolquery, but many other queries are rewritten to Lucene’s BooleanQuery internally. The limit is in place to prevent searches from becoming too large and taking up too much CPU and memory. In case you’re considering increasing this setting, make sure you’ve exhausted all other options to avoid having to do this. Higher values can lead to performance degradations and memory issues, especially in clusters with a high load or few resources.
(Static, integer) Maximum nested depth of bool queries. Defaults to
This setting limits the nesting depth of bool queries. Deep nesting of boolean queries may lead to stack overflow.
