Google does not read all sitemap index files #2554
for this reason google does not index the whole site but only a part
config 2 (no problem)
but with config 2 i have a sitemap heavy with 50.000 record…
I've been able to reproduce this with my public site which has a sitemap index with 26 sitemaps. Google only pulls 17 of them when I submit the sitemap. I've been able to reproduce this with v2.12.1 and an old version 2.5 from last year as well meaning this is not new.
Google's docs state that they'll accept "up to 500 sitemap index files for each site" (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/75712).
I've tested with two other well known plugins and been able to reproduce the problem with one of them. It seems to be a problem with the new Google Search Console Sitemaps report. I'm going to see if they pick up all the sitemaps in the index after 12 or 24 hours.
