I just added several new nodes to my cluster. It kicked of a ton of rebalancing jobs which I think are slowing performance, since some of them are on large indices.
I found the api call to disable and control rebalancing at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/2.2/shards-allocation.html
Would there be any risks associated with simply disabling rebalancing until a time of day with less traffic?? NEW indices and shards should still be routed to the new nodes, correct? I would just like to let the rebalancing processes run overnight when nobody will be using the cluster.
