Cluster shards and how the operations are split between them

I have made the following steps:

  1. added 1 node, created an index with default number of shards
  2. ran for a while with this configuration
  3. added another node in the same cluster
  4. now there are 2 nodes in the cluster, and each node contains the same
  5. running requests on first node. i expect for the requests to be executed
    on both nodes and then aggregrated? i see only IOPs on one node.
    Any ideas what i am doing wrong? how do i make the other node to get some
    work load also?
