- Reading through a few forums I've come across TWO separate opinions on ElasticSearch's DEFAULT Retention Period. One indicated its 7 days whilst another Indicated its unlimited and one would manually need to DELETE or CLOSE older indices. Which one of these is the accurate statement? Also, in 5.2.2 what would be the preferred approach to maintain older indices?
- My requirement is to maintain 365 days worth of data. On an average, each timestamp would store 5 KB worth of data, almost 20000 of each data per day. I'm curious, does Elastic Search support any data compression (seeing its all text) but allow real time searches as well ? - we can tolerate some performance dip
