Class BalancedShardsAllocator.WeightFunction

Enclosing class:

public static class BalancedShardsAllocator.WeightFunction
extends java.lang.Object
This class is the primary weight function used to create balanced over nodes and shards in the cluster. Currently this function has 3 properties:
  • index balance - balance property over shards per index
  • shard balance - balance property over shards per cluster

Each of these properties are expressed as factor such that the properties factor defines the relative importance of the property for the weight function. For example if the weight function should calculate the weights only based on a global (shard) balance the index balance can be set to 0.0 and will in turn have no effect on the distribution.

The weight per index is calculated based on the following formula:
  • weightindex(node, index) = indexBalance * (node.numShards(index) - avgShardsPerNode(index))
  • weightnode(node, index) = shardBalance * (node.numShards() - avgShardsPerNode)
weight(node, index) = weightindex(node, index) + weightnode(node, index)
