Is the bulk thread pool bounded by n. processors?

Hey there, I am trying to increase the number of the thread pool size related to bulk but when I try nothing happens. The only way to do it is to use processor settings.

Can you explain it to me the reason?

Is there a reason you want to do this?

I'd suggest reading this topic for a solid refutation on why you think you might need to do this.

you question is obviously correct.
I am trying to tune DATA node's consumption performance, so I would like to understand if working on that aspect will give me any pros or cons.
my bulk queue is configured with an acceptable size (100), never really reached while the CPU usage is settle to 50%. So I would try to enforce resources utilisation

For high indexing workloads throughput is often limited by storage performance, but heap usage and garbage collection can also play a part. What type of storage are you using? Are you monitoring disk I/O and iowait? Are there any indications in the logs of long or frequeng garbage collection?

I have SSD on the machines.
Yes, I am monitoring disk I/O and iowait. Currently, ES is using 23% on CPU and I have iowait between 7% and 15%.
Generally, one time per day I saw these logs:

Investigating into gc.log files I can see a plenty of the following messages:
