Balancing shards on non-uniform hardware


(Yooz) #1

Hello sirs,

If I had a cluster with varying amounts of RAM available, e.g. 4, 8,
16GB available for ES to use via ES_MIN_MEM/ES_MAX_MEM, will the
cluster know how to balance the shards correctly according the the
resources available on each node?

Thanks!

No, there is no support for that in elasticsearch. Memory plays just a part
of different level of servers, btw.
