Delete doesn't delete all indexes

(Robin Clarke) #1

I am trying to delete a month of logstash indexes, and fire off e.g. this

curl -XDELETE "http://localhost:9200/logstash-2014.05*?pretty"

which returns within a few seconds (less than a minute - the default
timeout afaik) with:
"acknowledged" : true

But when I look at the indexes, only a couple have been deleted... I have
to repeat the command several times until all indexes from the month are
Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?
