As I understand from the docs, data from a single shard goes to same path.data directory.
So, let's suppose, my path.data looks like ["/disk1", "/disk2"]. and I want maximum throughput for indexing. To achieve that, what I would ideally do is, assign 2 shards per node and expect ES to create these two shards on different path directories. However, I'm observing that both shards are created on "/disk1".
Why is that? Should this change? Is this an optimization that we can do in future versions?
Thanks in advance!
