Problem with relocating shard


#1

Hi! I've got a question regarding relocations of shards. I'm trying to relocate 4 shards, 2.5 GB each into another node using curator (from SSD to SSD). So I'm changing the box_type from hot to warm, shards are relocating etc but when the process hits 100% whole allocation process starts all over again - what could be the reason of that?

Can you share some more information about what you're actually seeing? There's only a limited number of shard movements permitted at once, so I wonder if you are seeing the end of one relocation followed by the start of the next, and everything's actually fine.

If a relocation is actually failing, there should be log messages indicating why, and we can help interpret them if needed.
