I have some questions regarding frozen indices.
Is there a possibility to declare a node as a "frozen node"? I have a cluster with 3 nodes and I am wondering if I could ad a node which takes all the indices that are frozen by the ILM. Lets say a index is 30Days old and it gets frozen by the ILM is there a way that the index is automatically transfered to the frozen node and not replicated across other nodes?
It is stated that a frozen index has less overhead. But my frozen indices take up the same disk space as the unfrozen version. Is this normal? My index is 73GB and has 114Mio documents.
How do you use frozen indices in your work environment? What are the capabilities of a frozen index?
Is a Hot/Frozen Cluster a good idea? I don't think I need a warm cluster because its neither a hot nor a frozen thing. I want either really fast results or less used disk space.
