Rollover or not


My question is whether using Rollover API is useful even if we do not use a hot/warm hw setup (all our nodes have the same hardware).

What we want to gain is:

  • to have more equal sized shards without having to manually configure each index.
  • better utilization of resources since we can optimize non writable indices

Are these good enough reasons for moving to rollover? Perhaps there are more?

Any inputs is highly appreciated.

That is exactly what rollover API allows you to do. As long as you have time-based data it does not really matter of you use hot-warm architecture or not - you will still benefit.

Thanks @Christian_Dahlqvist!
