  1. Search factor: The search factor (SF) decides the number of searchable copies an indexer cluster can maintain of the data/bucket. For example, the search factor value of 3 shows that the cluster can maintain up to 3 copies of each bucket.
  2. Replication factor: The replication factor (RF) determines the number of users that can receive copies of your data/buckets. However, the search factor should not be greater than the replication factor.
