Hello all !

I know the number of shards is limited by the amount of heap. For example, on my hot node, I have 30GB of heap so limit is 600 shards on this node (20 shards par GB of heap)

But what about the limit for cold nodes where shards/indices are not accessed frequently ? If, let's say, I have 2000 shards of frozen indices on my cold node, how much amount of heap does I need ?

Does the shards recommended limit apply to cold nodes/frozen indices ?

Thanks for your feedback !
