Disk space based retention of index documents

I am wondering, if there is a way to configure elasticsearch in a way, that elastic search indices start deleting documents when a certain disk threshold is exceeded?

What I have in mind is a elasticsearch setup, which behaves much like a cyclic logging.

Background is, that I'm thinking about offering a ELK as a Service offering and somehow need an automatic way to manage my elasticsearch in a fixed resource environment (fixed disk size in particular).

Best regards,


But there is Elasticsearch Curator that can do it if you are using time based indices, which you should be!

Thanks Mark, this might do the trick - will take a closer look!
