Is it safe to remove excess buckets?

Builder

Hi,

I see some excess buckets in the bucket status tab in the indexer clustering page.

Is it safe to click remove button ? Does data become unavailable during the operation ?

Should the cluster be kept in the maintenance mode prior to the operation ?

Thanks

You sure can remove excess buckets without affecting cluster's operation. See this for more details and steps for remove excess buckets:
