I have an Aerospike Cluster v3.8.4 - I don’t understand how the numbers of master / replica objects works.
My 7 nodes cluster had 18M master objects and 36M replicas (replication factor of 3).
When I just added 6 new nodes to the cluster, the number of master objects dropped to 16M and replica objects dropped to 1M. I noticed from the application that no objects were actually lost, and the cluster is increasing the number of objects over time, without any write to it, which I suppose it is re-creating the master and replicas.
Why this is so confusing?
