indices command provides a cross-section of each index. This
information spans nodes.

We can tell quickly how many shards make up an index, the number of docs, deleted docs, primary store size, and total store size (all shards including replicas).
Note: docs.count includes the count of nested documents. So if you have a single document with 2 associated nested documents, the docs.count will show 3.
The index stats by default will show them for all of an index’s
shards, including replicas. A
pri flag can be supplied to enable
the view of relevant stats in the context of only the primaries.
