Recently I have found out that on one of the servers my ES create
additional node few days after launch, then one more 2 days later. ES on
this host was alone node not connected to any cluster. I have already found
out that these are worker nodes and number of all nodes on this host is
exact equivalent of max number of nodes per host . They were created
exactly at midnight. From logs I see that it's right before performing
daily reindexing from DB (about 2000 docs, so tiny number).
I've got some questions related to that for which I couldn't google the
- What could cause these nodes to be created (and what usually is the
cause - is there any documentation about that)? Was that reindexing init?
(actual reindexing is logged after creating a node)
- Does number of nodes shrink under any circumstances?
I'm wondering ... that host was almost completely idle and only daily
reindexing was some work, but still small considering index's size.
Considering load one node is fairly enough to handle that, so why add
more? If it could be caused just by splitting shards and creating replicas
to have a 'healthy' cluster, why those nodes were added so late? This all
just doesn't add up.
