Index - shards not allocating properly


(Brad) #1

I'm having an issue with index allocation on elasticsearch version 2.4

Scenario:

5 elasticsearch nodes with a defined attribute node_type: active
2 elasticsearch nodes with a defined attribute node_type: archive

With a created index called alpha1, I issue the following commands:

  1. curl -XPUT localhost:9200/alpha1/_settings -d '{"index.routing.allocation.include.node_type" : "active"}'
 - As expected, all the shards are distributed across the nodes with attribute 'active'
  1. curl -XPUT localhost:9200/alpha1/_settings -d '{"index.routing.allocation.include.node_type" : "archive" }'

    • As expected, all the shards moved off of the 'active' nodes and relocated to the nodes marked 'archive'
  2. Now, the part that I am struggling with, is if I issue the command:
    curl -XPUT localhost:9200/alpha1/_settings -d '{"index.routing.allocation.include.node_type" : "archive,active" }'

  • I would expect the shards would be distributed across both node type active and archive. This is not the case. All the shards are moved back to strictly the 'active' nodes. I don't believe I have any other allocation filters defined in the cluster.

Any thoughts on this?

From https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/2.4/allocation-filtering.html

cluster.routing.allocation.include.{attribute}
Assign the index to a node whose {attribute} has at least one of the comma-separated values.

How many shards des the index have?

I've been testing with both 5 & 7 shards and 1 replica.

Perhaps you can show the output of _cat/allocation and _cat/shards.

And how are the nodes tagged?
