Auto creation of indexes is done in the wrong timezone


(Roberto) #1
 Hi,

 Everyday, at 9:00 PM, a new index is created by ES. I think this 

process should be done at midnight. Anyone has idea of what is going on? My
timezone is GMT-3, by the way.

Thanks,
Roberto

I have this situation using logstash+ES (GMT-4). Some events have an
ISO8601 timestamp in GMT and those events seem to trigger the index
creation ahead of schedule. I have considered trying to mess with the
timestamps but technically the timestamp is correct and my searches in
Kibana all come back with the correct times for the results, so I haven't
really looked at it further.

Hi Roberto,

What software uses Elasticsearch in your setup? I suppose that
particular software creates the index automatically.

Normally, indices are automatically created when you index your first document.

  Hi Radu,

  I'm using Kibana for all searches. I really don't know if it is the

responsible for creating the indexes - very likely it isn't. Anyway, ES
should act like any other application and obey to the OS timezone....

  If anyone knows something about that, please let us know.

Thanks,
Roberto
