Elastiknn vs Opendistro KNN

Greetings all,

I was wondering if there is any benchmarks between Elastiknn plugin and that of Opendistro. I was also wondering if Elastiknn has been considered to be a component part of Opendistro since both are Apache 2.0.

Your input is highly appreciated.


Hi @asfoorial

We do not have any benchmarks between Elastiknn and our plugin.

At the moment, we are not considering Elastiknn to be a part of Opendistro.


Elastiknn seems to be pretty similar to the knn plugin even in terms of the interface. I think it is worthwhile comparing both of them and posting some benchmarks to see where we stand.
