> JIRA for Jan's comments on SOLR-6513:
> I thought we agreed to prefer the term "shard" over "slice", so I think we should do
this for this API as well.
> The only place in our refguide we use the word "slice" is in How SolrCloud Works [1]
and that description is disputed.
> The refguide explanation of what a shard is can be found in Shards and Indexing Data
in SolrCloud [2], quoting:
> When your data is too large for one node, you can break it up and store it in sections
by creating one or more shards. Each is a portion of the logical index, or core, and it's
the set of all nodes containing that section of the index.
> So I'm proposing a rename of this API to BALANCESHARDUNIQUE and a rewrite of [1].

> Note Mark's comment on that JIRA, but I think it would be best to continue to talk about
"shards" with user-facing operations.
