How to set Elasticsearch shards and replica

#1

We are using Amazon Elasticsearch. There's a question raised for scaling and query performance.

As we are adding more and more fields/document, do we need to customize our own number of shards or replicas?

Is there a good configurations for the number of shards or replica?

Thanks!

May I suggest you look at the following resources about sizing:

https://www.elastic.co/elasticon/conf/2016/sf/quantitative-cluster-sizing

And https://www.elastic.co/webinars/using-rally-to-get-your-elasticsearch-cluster-size-right

BTW did you look at https://www.elastic.co/cloud and https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B01N6YCISK ?

Cloud by elastic is one way to have access to all features, all managed by us. Think about what is there yet like Security, Monitoring, Reporting, SQL, Canvas, APM, Logs UI, Infra UI and what is coming next :slight_smile: ...
