Had a question on the setting "total_shards_per_node". If I set an index up
-- shards = # of nodes in my cluster
-- total_shards_per_node of 2
-- replicas set to 1
Then I would get an even distribution of shards and replicas across my
cluster, make sense. The question is what happens if I have a node failure?
Does the cluster fail to allocate new replicas for the shards that were on
the failed node? Does that mean I have potential data loss if any two nodes
fail, no matter the size of the cluster?
I did some digging in the code and that seems to be the case but wanted to
confirm I haven't missed anything.
