Scalability of Alerting

Hi there!

I have a question regarding the alerting-feature. The official documentation states that if too many watches trigger concurrently and there isn’t enough capacity to execute them all, some of the watches are queued. Will it reduce the number of queued watches if i add another node to the cluster?

Yes, thanks to distributed watch execution, as long as the new node has a shard (primary or replica) of the .watches index. You may need to add a replica to achieve this.
