I am using Elasticsearch version 7.8.0
I used API "
SPLIT" to break my big index into multiple shards.
After split was concluded successfully....
I found that my new SPLITTED Index [
myindex-000797-sp ] is double the size of Source Index ...
health status index uuid pri rep docs.count docs.deleted store.size pri.store.size green open myindex-000797 aHevVd8iSZyy4Wmfg1Q4rw 5 1 1057316946 0 1.5tb 798.9gb green open myindex-000797-sp FUU40j43SiKNkDk1Bprbcg 10 1 1057316946 829935320 3.1tb 1.6tb
Could you please help me to understand why is so ... and how should i reduce the SIZE of new SPLITTED Index.
