I am now studying for elasticsearch and reading the definitive guide on-line.
While I was reading the document, I came across to a part where there seems to be a contradiction.
In "Production Deployment" -> "Important Configuration Changes" -> "Recovery Setting",
Sentences are trying to set 8 for expected nodes.
What this means is that Elasticsearch will do the following: Wait for eight nodes to be present Begin recovering after 5 minutes or after ten nodes have joined the cluster, whichever comes first.
However, in the sample configuration it is setting 10
gateway.expected_nodes: 10 gateway.recover_after_time: 5m
Is my understanding wrong?
If I am correct, I am happy to amend and make proposal in git hub.
