Class MaxRetryAllocationDecider


public class MaxRetryAllocationDecider extends AllocationDecider
An allocation decider that prevents shards from being allocated on any node if the shards allocation has been retried N times without success. This means if a shard has been INITIALIZING N times in a row without being moved to STARTED the shard will be ignored until the setting for index.allocation.max_retry is raised. The default value is 5. Note: This allocation decider also allows allocation of repeatedly failing shards when the /_cluster/reroute?retry_failed=true API is manually invoked. This allows single retries without raising the limits.
