Question about CPU Cores


(electic) #1

Hi,

First off, thanks for everyone that is helping me. I am new to ES and
Java. I have a question about CPU cores in a cluster. I noticed when
ES peaks, it seems to max out only 4 cores of the machine. Machine 1
has 8 cores and Machine 2 in the cluster has only 4 cores. Does ES use
the lowest common denominator across the cluster?

If not, is there a way to have ES use all the cores of the available
machine?

No, there is no specific utilization of a subset of cores by ES, it will
use what it has.
