Add data nodes to an existing cluster

(Sukesh) #1

I have an ES (5.6) Cluster with 3 data nodes.
"number_of_shards": "5"
"number_of_replicas": "1"

I would like to add 2 more data nodes to this cluster.
Is there any documentation for adding additional data nodes ?
After adding the Do I need to change the "shards" ?
Is there any equation to calculate shards ?
