Its taking more than 1 min for Couchbase node to detect Peer couchbase node is down!


There are 2 nodes in a cluster.
1)Shutdown Node1
2)Node2 is taking more than 1 min to detect that Node1 is down and mark it unhealthy

Is there any parameter which we can set to reduce the time to detect failure.?

Note: This is only in case of a shutdown/...

I upload 10K documents to the bucket. The cluster now divides the data across the nodes. Node 1: 5K active / 5K replica Node 2: 5K active / 5K...
