How many shards should I put in a node? 继续讨论:

Thanks for your answer!

There also some viewpoints show that we should keep shards number per node small.

and this experiment : http://blog.trifork.com/2014/01/07/elasticsearch-how-many-shards/
How can I keep balance between “light and easy to reallocation” and “more shard use more resource”?

@shinyke - When u have say shards of max size 50 G, you are talking about shards say 10 for .5 TB of data. 10 is not big. Remember u do have limit per node (depends on ur query/index characteristics) on how much data u can have in a node to effectively suppoer queries with a reasonable performance.
btw - my .5 TB of data is an example!
