Shards not sharing equally periodically


(srrin) #1

Hi Shay,

We have configured the ES in our live environment and periodically we facing this issue, that shards are not sharing equally.
During this time we need to stop the ES, remove all data nodes and restart ES. What would be the work around to fix this issue permanently. I have placed my config details below. Kindly help us to figure out the issue and get a permanent solution for this issue. Thanks in advance.

host : 10.1.0.8

Hi srrIN

What version of ES are you using? I know that various balancing issues
were fixed on 0.16.

Hi Clinton.,
Thank you for the reply. Currently we are using ES. 0.15.2.

Do I need to upgrade to 0.16.0 to fix these issues?
