Summary
=======
Use server side pagination in Searchlight UI

Problem Statement
===============
Currently Searchlight-UI allows filtering and result set limiting. For pagination it is using smart table client side pagination. This has multiple problems:

* More results than are currently displayed are returned creating unnecessary network trafic
* There is no way to properly scroll the results if they exceed your current result limit

Description
=========

Use the elasticsearch pagination or scrolling mechanism for providing "pagination" or infinite scroll abilities.

Only return initial results then either on infinite scroll or clicking next page button scroll the next set of results from the server.
