Curator doesn't purge Data


(Salma Ait Lhaj) #1

Hi,

I install curator and in order to test it I make : 1 day to purge data, but it seems to me that it doesn't work, my indice from yesterday is still here and not deleted.

    action: delete_indices

If you turn on debug logging, you will see all of the timestamp comparisons in the log. My guess is that you haven't hit a full 24 hours past UTC day rollover (this is what Curator uses). See the age filter documentation for more information. Here's a snippet, though:

All calculations are in epoch time, which is the number of seconds elapsed since 1 Jan 1970.

Normallly I should have today just 21 and 20 but I still have others !!

Please, help me solve this problem !!


(Aaron Mildenstein) #4

This is the _cat API output, and not debug output from Curator. I can't help debug Curator without the debug logs.


(Salma Ait Lhaj) #5

How can I show you the debug log ?


(Aaron Mildenstein) #6

In your client configuration file, in the logging section, you set loglevel: DEBUG. Be sure to define logfile as well, so you know where it will be logged (and this path should be somewhere the user executing the script has write privileges). If no logfile is specified, Curator will log to STDOUT.

client:
  hosts:
    - 172.16.250.29
  port: 9200
  url_prefix:
  use_ssl: False
  certificate:
  client_cert:
  client_key:
  ssl_no_validate: False
  http_auth:
  timeout: 30
  master_only: False
logging:
  loglevel: INFO
  logfile:
  logformat: default
  blacklist: ['elasticsearch', 'urllib3'] ```



So instead of INFO I put DEBUG 

But in the log file I don't know what to put !!

(Aaron Mildenstein) #8

Yes, put DEBUG there.

Don't put anything, and just capture the logs in your terminal window.


(Salma Ait Lhaj) #9

????

How can I you that this will work, should I wait again one day ?


(Aaron Mildenstein) #10

How are you executing Curator now? If the action file listed above is all you have, then it won't hurt anything to run it again manually, as it won't delete anything that's not specified (i.e. age hasn't changed).

I did this :

 curator --config ~/.curator/curator.yml --dry-run  ~/.curator/action.yml  

and I had this :

(Aaron Mildenstein) #12

I would still need everything output, not just that many lines. That only tells me schema validation information.

So, what's the problem? This looks completely proper to me.

You start with logstash-2018.05.21, logstash-2018.05.20, logstash-2018.05.19, logstash-2018.05.18, and logstash-2018.05.17. It's marking all but logstash-2018.05.21, for deletion, which is what your action file is configured to do. So what is the problem?

Are you running with --dry-run all the time? Curator won't actually do the deletes if you run with --dry-run.

But when I do the Cat, I still see the older index, also in timelion I'm seing the oldest one.

Yes, I always run it with --dry-run, how should I run it to delete the oldest logs ?
