Adding more shards for the existing collection

Currently we have a collection with 2 shards, We want to split the 2 shards into 4 shards collection. Since each shards size has increased to 5TB of data.

 

 

Is there any option available to split the existing shards?

Re: Adding more shards for the existing collection

Hello,

 

You can perform a Split Shard which should work in your use case.
