Is zen discovery fd ping_retries setting is for the maximum amount of time to rejoin the cluster?


#1

I am planning to set the ping_timeout ping_retries with the the following,

zen.fd:
ping_retries: 20

so that if there is a networking failure exists for <10 minutes, the node will join back assuming this setting is for the max amount of time master will attempt to join back a node to the cluster.

But I am skeptical about that. The doc does not clearly says that [ https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/modules-discovery-zen.html#fault-detection ].

Is that the setting is just the time to detect that it’s failed, or is it also the max amount of time it will attempt to re-join a cluster?
