Indexers cluster: Data synchronization after failure



I am creating an indexer cluster (2 peers and replication factor=2) and I need to know:

  1. If one of the peers is down, the other one keep receiving events (from the sources or HF) and responding searches to the Search Head right?

  2. When the peer is up again, does it receive the events generated during the time it was down? Or they will only reside in the peer that was up all the time?

  3. Do we need to backup both indexers although they have the same data?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

I've been reading what you sent me and I think that the answers are:

  1. YES
  2. YES
  3. ?

Is that correct?

Thank's again.
