Pause FTS temporarily?

While inserting bulk records of certain type that already have an FTS index configured, I notice that cbft.exe keeps using the cpu heavily.

Is it possible to pause the FTS service or maybe only one index until my operation is complete? In order to relief the cpu.


Hey @lenix, Unfortunately, there isn’t really a way of pausing FTS at the moment.
If you see that too many indexes being around is killing the CPU, I’d recommend dropping one (some) of them as this is a sign of your cluster being undersized.

I’ve created an internal ticket for myself to consider the pause/resume capability for a future release.

Hey @lenix, @abhinav,

Did you try the already existing APIs for index management.? (ingestControl, queryControl , planFreezeControl)
Won’t this suffice your requirements?
