Clear my system


#1

Hi,

Have been trying ELK for a while now...still not in production and a lot of things aren't working. I've a feeling that something is a bit screwy. I have stopped everything send data to my ELK stack and cleared all indices, yet there is still 11GB of data in my Data drive, 30GB in Elasticsearch\logs and 4GB in logstash\logs.

I don't want to wipe the system and rebuild it, but...is there away to clear ALL data and logs?

I have backed up and documented everything
Thanks

How did you clear the data ?


#3

From Dev Tools DELETE /indexname-*

What gives:

GET _cat/indices?v

You have some remaining indices. All the %{[@metadata][beat]}-*...

No more indexname-* index so all is good.

BTW you have a very strange naming like for %{[@metadata][beat]}-2017.11.02. Probably you have a misconfiguration.
