This is for opendistro-for-elasticsearch-kibana:0.10.0. Once I am logged in, occasionally it takes 15-20 seconds to switch between the index patterns in the Discover tab. Here is an example showing the request breakdown using the Chrome console:
_msearch is the part where Kibana initiates the ES query to bring the latest 15 minutes worth results for given index pattern, that takes 127ms so I am pretty sure that things get slow internally, inside the Kibana system.
Same Kibana UI, 15 minutes later, no config changes and the same request takes ~120ms:
3 stages this time (no
_find?type=index-pattern&per_page=10000 request, no idea why?). I do acknowledge there may be some caching involved but it seems to me things are happening at random here. Kibana verbose logging did not help either, it basically confirms the stages happening as I see those in the Chrome console. What I would like to understand is why those
_bulk_get requests take that long.
