I have a remote ES cluster with 5 connected nodes/servers:
- Node A/B are coordinating nodes/servers
- Node C/D/E are master nodes/servers
My 6th server is Fess. In my “bin/fess.in.sh”, I’ve put:
ES_HTTP_URL = NodeA_URL_at_port_9200
This works, but I wonder what happens when Node A got shut down, does fess connection to my cluster also got shut down? Is there a way:
for fess to keep trying to reconnect to Node A in case Node A got shut down. I’m talking like forever polling… since if Node A got shut down on Friday and got restarted on next week’s Tuesday, I hardly doubt Fess will keep trying to reconnect to Node A from this week’s Friday to next week’s Tuesday.
for fess to auto switch to Node B (the other coordinating node) in case Node A got shut down?
