Remote cluster information

Introduced 1.0

This operation provides connection information for any remote OpenSearch clusters that you’ve configured for the local cluster, such as the remote cluster alias, connection mode (sniff or proxy), IP addresses for seed nodes, and timeout settings.

The response is more comprehensive and useful than a call to _cluster/settings, which only includes the cluster alias and seed nodes.
