I am new to elastic and am looking to use elastic at the moment for logging and APM. I love it.
Having said that, since we are just getting things up and running, we are limited to one windows production server which I believe is only capable of having one elastic node.
One challenge with just having one node however, is the hot/warm/cold architecture and methodology of retiring data isn't really viable for us. Having said that, I have concerns that our storage space on our server will just continue to grow and grow as we get more indexes every day.
Additionally I have daily snapshots running that also take up more and more storage space.
My question for you guys, is...
- Is there a way to back up and delete indexes older than a specific date? Or is there a way to make the single elastic node not use indexes (like freezing them) after a specific date?
- Is there a way to delete snapshots after a specific date. Like a month old?
