Excellent, that's what I thought and hoped for!
Related Qs about "A closed index can be opened which will then go
through the normal recovery process." from
- What is involved in index recovery? (I'm assuming a simple close
followed by open results in this recovery process?) And roughly how
long might that take, say for a 10GB index?
It will be pretty fast, it mainly involves the cost of opening Lucene for
each shard, and replaying the transaction log.
- What happens if some external indexer decides to a closed index? I
assume an exception is thrown? Any way to get ES to open it, allow
write, and maybe close if after the index has seen no reads/writes for
I assume you mean decides to index/search against hte index? An exception
will be thrown. You will need to manage opening / closing it yourself.

What is the cost/overhead of simply keeping (i.e. not searching)
indices in an ES cluster?
- Say you need to index news and decide to create monthly indices.
- Say you want to keep even old news indexed, but don't want to search
- Say you want to be able to search only the last N months (i.e.
indices) worth of news.
What is the cost associated with keeping older indices in the cluster?
