Hi, I have a badly-sharded index
myindex-000003 which rolled over from
myindex and has already become readonly. I ran the split API to optimize it and the new index size is 4x larger.
- Why it is larger? Is it performing a document “defragging” in the background?
- What are the next steps to fully replace
myindex-000003? Should I delete it and then create an alias against the new index pointing to
myindex-000003? Should I wait for the “defragging” to finish?
