Indexer cluster data re-balancing peer exclusion?

New Member

I have an Indexer cluster with 4 nodes and a master, currently the four peers are the only nodes ingesting data (I'm unsure if this goes against best practice or not). I'm curious, if I start data re-balancing, will the cluster try to move data to my master? If so, is there a way to tell it to not do this?

It will only re-balance across peer nodes, read more here:

Hope it helps
