Was wondering if I could get some clarity on the following issue:
We are using ES 2.3.3, and have some indices that are no longer being written into. We went ahead and executed a force merge on those indices setting the max number of segments to 1. The API returns a success, however nothing happens. Viewing the _cat API we can confirm that the same number of segments exist post the merge.
Is my assumption that segments should equal 1 correct, or am I missing something.
Thanks in advance.
