Storage level in Elasticsearch cluster


I've a Elasticsearch cluster with 5 nodes. I've this used storage repartition:

Node1: 76%
Node2: 94%
Node3: 88%
Node4: 73%
Node5: 74%

How to do to "leveling" the used storage ?

For the node 2 et 3, We arrived to the watermark threshold.

In my other cluster, the used is equal / leveling size. Exemple on an other cluster:

Node1: 61%
Node2: 63%
Node3: 60%
Node4: 63%
Node5: 62%


Welcome to our community! :smiley:

Elasticsearch balances the number of shards it has across nodes. If some shards are different size then you can end up with use like this. What does _cat/allocation?v show?
