Reduce indexing memory usage

    The --experimental-reduce-indexing-memory-usage configuration option enables MDB_WRITEMAP, an LMDB option. Activating it can reduce RAM usage in some UNIX and UNIX-like setups. However, it may also negatively impact write speeds and overall performance.

    This is an experimental feature. Experimental features are unstable: their implementation might significantly change and become incompatible between releases. Meilisearch does not recommend using experimental features in a production environment.

    Meilisearch makes experimental features available expecting they will become stable in a future release. However, it is not possible to guarantee when and if this will happen.
