Disk space management


(derrickburns) #1

Suppose I have a 2 node cluster and I create a new index with a single
shard. Which node is assigned the new index? What is the algorithm? Does
the algorithm take into consideration how much local disk space available
(when using a local gateway)? Does the algorithm take into consideration
how many open indices are associated with each node? Does the algorithm
take into consideration how many closed indices are associated with each
node?

The aim is to have even number of shards (of open indices) across all
nodes. Disk space is not taken into account.
