Rebalance is the process of redistributing shards evenly across all eligible (non-excluded) nodes after a cluster has been resized. In most cases you expand a cluster, adding nodes so the cluster capacity matches the growth of your data. However, you can also choose to reduce the number of nodes in a cluster.
