3 Node Cluster With Nodes Out of Sync

Hi Guys,

We are running a 3 node cluster, and each node returns a different number
of documents when issued a direct HTTP "_count" call.

The cluster holds about 150K documents and the differences range from 30~50
documents, but are still troubling.

This shouldn't be a "split brain" problem, since we have set:
discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes: 2
We also have a "client" node, but since client nodes are eligible to be
master, I understand that they shouldn't affect the master election process.

Any Ideas about why and how this is happening?

Thanks!

minimum_master_nodes still doesn't protect you from all possible failure

Alright, we'll try upgrading. Thanks :slight_smile:

Meanwhile, any advice on how to fix an inconsistency once it is found? Is
there an API to forcefully "sync" nodes, or at-least reindex from a
specific node?

If this is replicas only, you should be able to set replica count to 0 and
then after a while back to 2 again

If this is sharded, then no, you'll have to reindex from scratch.
