Shard routing allocation excludes

(Michael Salmon) #1

Recently I tried cluster.routing.allocation.exclude._ip and it worked once
I had actually set the IP address, I had presumed that ES would look up the
address for me. I also tried setting the parameter to 2 names in an array
and while this was accepted it didn't seem to do anything.

In the end I decided to look at the source code and I found that as well as
_ip there was _host, _name and _id which pleased me as I plan to have
multiple nodes per host.

I wonder though if these are new or deprecated.
