Sneakernet data transfer

Is it possible to copy an index to media (external hard drive, etc)
and reload the data into a clone cluster?

Yes, this is possible (mainly also thanks to the new disable flushing flag in 0.16.2). The process should be, disable flushing on all indices, copy over the data directories of all nodes, and then re-enable flushing.

The data location is stored under data/[cluster_name], if you want to change the cluster name, you need to make sure to rename that directory to the cluster name you copy to.
