Sort Order Inconsistent


#1

Elasticsearch is running in a cluster with multiple shards. Two are primary, the rest are not. Using version 5.5.2.

I have several records with the same address but different document id. When I sort by address the order of the items within the same address varies. I assumed this is because the secondary ordering criteria is the document order.

When I run the search using the preference of _primary, the order is consistent. When I run the search using a preference of _replica, the sort is not consistent.

Is this expected behavior for primary and replica? Why does the order differ on replica?

Ok, found relevant info in The Definitive Guide. Says it's for v2.2, but that's fine. See Bouncing Results.
