Can Curator run continously?



I am interested in using Curator to manage my Elasticsearch cluster. My goal is to use Curator for rolling deletion of my documents (i.e. all event older than 60 days).

My question is can I run Curator once and have it continue to update this deletion process each day on its own, or do I have to run Curator separately each day that I want to delete.

Thank you for your help and I apologize if any of this is confusing.

Hello Miranda,

Curator operates at the index level. It cannot delete documents from indices, but only whole indices.

Yes. Typically users use cron to schedule Curator running every day. Windows users can use the scheduler there.

UPDATE: Fixed verbiage on documents vs. indices.


My apologies, deleting indices is the goal.

Thank you for your help!
