I believe I have a storage issue with regards to deleted documents.
I was hoping to leave elasticsearch/lucene do its thing and merge out deletes, but i'm not sure why this isnt happening. Its only a problem as I am now consistently hitting my low disk watermark, meaning replicas will not be assigned.
I've done a force merge expunge deleted, but this is painfully slow (I have a 325GB index, its taken 13 hours and still going (in tasks API).
As to our use case, We have about 15 types, some we update often (Like diary events, think calendar), others are much more static.
Any recommendations where I can look to help me out?
Thanks for your help in advance,
