I have elasticsearch set up on one ec2 vm with ebs storage, with 5
shards and 0 replicas.
I am trying to increase index availability beyond the ebs levels
without using more servers.
My first thought was to set replicas=1,attach a second ebs drive to my
server and configure elasticsearch to store the replicas in the second
drive. Unfortunately I cannot find any config option doing that. I
guess this is not how es replication works. Or am I missing something?
This leaves me with the option to introduce downtime to the service so
that I can shut down ES to flush data to disk, copy index to s3 and
Any other options?
thx in advance,
