ES with WORM stroage


#1

Hello?
I'm using ES 6.1 and my client want to store old data into WORM (Write Once Read Many) storage.
So I'll move old index to WORM storage mounted node.
I'm worrying about whether ES will work or not on WORM storage.
Cause I think some meta files like .st or .lock may need to be changed or removed.
Does anybody knows about this or how to solve?
Please let me know.
Thanks.

Elasticsearch requires a normal read/write filesystem. As you correctly note, there are things like lock files that it certainly expects to be able to modify, but in general it needs to be able to modify every file under its control.

Thank you.
