Deleting snapshots


(Ritesh) #1

Hi I was reading thru the following article.. Please help me understand will it delete the files in S3 bucket as well? If not then what is the approach to purge old snapshots in S3 bucket.

Thanks..

You should never directly interact with the files in a snapshot repository. You should only ever interact with a snapshot repository via the Elasticsearch API calls (which is what Curator does).

When all references to a segment are deleted (in a Snapshot Delete call), then the associated segments will also be deleted from your S3 bucket.
