Change number of shards on daily index


(Peter Cowen) #1

We currently have the default 5 shards per index but I have started to notice when searching in Kibana it is taking around 20 seconds to search or kibana is slow to populate filter fields.
We have a daily index that is created. Is there a way to change the shards to 1 shard when the next index is created or do I need to do this for all?

I was hoping to change the number of shards on the next index created so I could see the improvements in the monitoring tab?

Or can anyone suggest any other kibana performance troubleshooting tips

You can do this by creating an index template that specifies the number of shards you want to use.
