Uneven servers


(Antonio Lobato) #1

Does elasticsearch do any sort of intelligent server capability
detection and split load between servers with more CPU/RAM and less?

We have a new servers we want to throw into our elastic cluster, but
they are vastly more powerful in terms of processing cores and RAM
than what exists in our cluster already. Would elastic take advantage
of this bigger server (ie: assigning it more data into a node) or is
it pretty much split evenly across all servers?

I have a good feeling that it will just split evenly, but, I figured
it was worth asking. Thanks!

It will split evenly between the servers. Though, there are plans to allow
for different types of "splits", including based on index size, or even how
"strong" the machine is (relatively).
