I currently have an ILM policy that does the following:
As mentioned here, after shrink I end up having a shard size of 40GB. I have then configured ILM to delete the indices after 7 days.
However, the ILM policy for all my indices is stuck at the 'forcemerge' stage.
GET indexname/_ilm/explain gives the same result.
It is not moving to the next stage. Is the forcemerge pending due to an issue or are the segment count too small?
I understand that currently there is no option to check the forcemerge status, the elasticsearch logs also do not have any information about the issue. Please suggest.
PS: The monitoring data for the index does show a drop in the segment count, but that does not match with the policy segment count.
