I am newbie to the elastic search. While I am looking at static index settings I found
index.number_of_routing_shards there mentioned that it is used to split an index. After seeing this sentence I got some questions in my mind.
- Why should I split an index?
2.Can some explain real-time scenarios.
3.How this parameter helps in splitting the index.
The example mentioned in the documentation is not clear to me.
It may be a silly question but as I am new to this and want to learn more, found interesting want to know the answer. I hope people can explain me with good example.
