Multi index search normalization

Thanks, Ophir


I'm considering opening a new index each time I'm going to run out of space
in the shards/replicas I defined,

and since it is not possible to add shards for an index unless rendering,

I'm thinking about writing code that identifies that space has gone low and
that will open a new index in the same cluster on a new machine.

My question is regarding g search. Say I hold an alias for search that
searches all the indexes I opened. How does the normalizing of the results
done? Because results are retuned form big and small indexes that give
rating relative to the index size and content.
