Get total number of objects in an index?

I was wondering if there’s a way to to get the total number of objects stored in the index through the python client library?

Right now, I get the collection, run through the entire iterator and count instances?

hi @ujjwalm29 !! Welcome to our community! :hugs:

iterating thru all the objects is not the optimal way.

You can aggregate over all your objects and get the top count:

aggregation = questions.aggregate.over_all(total_count=True)
