Best practice for thread pool queue size

Hi
We have several elastic search clusters
Recently we faced an issue in which one of our nodes experienced queueing.
In fact, the queue length was greater than 1000.
Subsequent requests were rejected as the queue was full.

Should we increase the default queue size?

I understand that there are several queue's within elastic search.

Increasing queues isn't going to help if there are underlying problems
stopping the processing.

Based on those errors it looks like you may have network issues, but they
are from July?

Yes the particular error is from July.
How can I determine the optimal setting for queue size?
