On the SH I see -

[shclustering]
....
replication_factor = 3

What is the replication_factor in this context?

In the indexer cluster, we have a replication and search factor of 2.

The replication factor determines the number of copies of each search artifact, or search result, that the cluster maintains. Replication occurs only for artifacts from scheduled saved searches. The cluster does not replicate results from ad hoc searches or realtime searches. (From https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.0/DistSearch/ChooseSHCreplicationfactor)
