Hunk - Distributed searches across the cluster

Ultra Champion

Based on previous discussions, I believe that Hunk's search heads replicate the searches across the cluster.
We don't feel, at this point, that it's needed. How can we disable the feature?

If the searches are saved & scheduled, you can't disable the replication of the artifacts at the completion of the search. If you do ad-hoc searches, none of those search results are replicated to other cluster members.
