Do distributed cloned indexes increase search performance?

Path Finder

It looks like indexes on both nodes are updated with the same entries. Does distributed indexing load and index the same data from a source to both indexers?

UPDATE It turns out that I've configured it to send each search peer a copy of the data to index. Does distributed search work more efficiently if the indexes are distributed of if they are a clone of each other's data?

No, it does not. All you'll if you distribute search over clones is that you'll get two copies of each cloned event in your results.
