How to route data on specific shard?


(Tarun Jangra) #1

I read somewhere, we can route specific data on specific shard. And
according to my understanding, we need this feature if we have content with
the different behavior of searches. When we have big documents and more
number of columns to be indexed. In this case, data should be routed on the
machine with high configurations.

I am assuming, i have different capacity machines in cloud and each machine
has one shard. And i want to push more sensitive data on high configuration
machines.

What do you mean by high configurations? Do you mean stronger boxes? In
this case, you can actually separate the two types of data into different
indices, and have one allocated on the stronger boxes, and the other on the
not so strong boxes. The feature is called index shard allocation:
