The only builds locally in the node to which you sent
the request. This makes it a bit tricky because if you send that
command with just the collection name, it will be resolved to a local
core and executed there. The safest/easiest way is to set
buildOnCommit or buildOnOptimize in the suggester configuration.

The SuggestComponent works in distributed mode and it will request and
merge results from all shards.
