We're using the snapshot API to backup our ES cluster and as time advances,
the repository storage utilization is growing.
Currently I use 'rsync' to copy snapshot repository data outside of our
production environment, but eventually I'd need to delete some snapshots to
free space for new ones.
The repository keeps files like 'index', 'snapshot-*' and 'metadata-' files
and I suspect that deleting these files will fail the repository from being
Is there a way that i can 'rsync' the snapshot repository to another
location and delete the existing snapshots?
Can I delete that snapshot data itself (the 'indices' directory the resides
in the repository) without damaging the repository itself?
Thanks for any idea,
