Why is data getting indexed to only one shard?


(Derek Willms) #1

We have a cluster with 11 shards and 1 replica.
Our cluster contains data about employees, with employee id as the document id.

We have indexed approximately 100 documents with the field "position" and value "software engineer" into the cluster. However, all of these documents have been indexed into shard 2. We have not specified a custom routing pattern, so we cannot figure out why the data is not being dispersed equally amongst the nodes in the cluster. Moreover, the problem seems to be unique to documents containing the value "software engineer" for "position."

Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be?
