Getting Data In

What happen when one of peer goes down and the other peer's storage is full?

I am thinking to use data duplication function in clustering environment. I understand there are search factors and replication factors to replicate data. When one of peers goes down, I assume the other peers replicate data according to replication policy ( search factors and replication factors ). My question is what happen when one of peer goes down and the other peer's storage is full?

I would like to know about replication function. If master node look for peer which have enough disk space or remove oldest replicated buckets and so on.

from the forwarder point of view

With a forwarder sending data loadbalanced to a set of indexers, if none of the indexers accepts data (outage, queues full, disk full...), then the forwarder will pause (stop monitoring the files, fill the persistent queues if any, and ultimately drop the non persistent events like udp/tcp/scripts)
