Deployment Architecture

How to architect in case where there are independent indexer clusters?

Path Finder

Hi Guru!

I have a question about clustering architecture.

Let's say there are independent 5 idx cluster sites, who have run their own idx cluster: site 1 runs idx1 cluster where there are 5 peer members, site 2 runs idx 2 cluster where there are 5 peer members, and so on.

Then, the customer wants to build central site 6 where search head should be able to search from site 1 idx cluster, site 2 idx cluster, site 3 idx cluster, site 4 idx cluster, and site 5 idx cluster.

Is it possible architecture? where should the cluster master of site 6 be located? If the cluster master of site 6 is not necessary, then who should be cluster master among idx cluster site 1,2,3,4 and 5?

You can add your SH to any Cluster Master to gain visibility into its Indexers
