       Search::Elasticsearch::Transport - Provides interface between the client class and the
       Elasticsearch cluster


       version 6.00


       The Transport class manages the request cycle. It receives parsed requests from the (user-
       facing) client class, and tries to execute the request on a node in the cluster, retrying
       a request if necessary.

       This class does Search::Elasticsearch::Role::Transport and


           $e = Search::Elasticsearch->new(
               send_get_body_as => 'POST'

       Certain endpoints like "search()" in Search::Elasticsearch::Client::6_0::Direct default to
       using a "GET" method, even when they include a request body.  Some proxy servers do not
       support "GET" requests with a body.  To work around this, the "send_get_body_as"
       parameter accepts the following:

       ·   "GET"

           The default.  Request bodies are sent as "GET" requests.

       ·   "POST"

           The method is changed to "POST" when a body is present.

       ·   "source"

           The body is encoded as JSON and added to the query string as the "source" parameter.
           This has the advantage of still being a "GET" request (for those filtering on request
           method) but has the disadvantage of being restricted in size.  The limit depends on
           the proxies between the client and Elasticsearch, but usually is around 4kB.


       Raw requests can be executed using the transport class as follows:

           $result = $e->transport->perform_request(
               method => 'POST',
               path   => '/_search',
               qs     => { from => 0, size => 10 },
               body   => {
                   query => {
                       match => {
                           title => "Elasticsearch clients"

       Other than the "method", "path", "qs" and "body" parameters, which should be self-
       explanatory, it also accepts:

           The HTTP error codes which should be ignored instead of throwing an error, eg "404 NOT

               $result = $e->transport->perform_request(
                   method => 'GET',
                   path   => '/index/type/id'
                   ignore => [404],

           Whether the "body" should be serialized in the standard way (as plain JSON) or using
           the special bulk format:  "std" or "bulk".
