Help on curator

I am bit confuse here!!!!!with the help of curator we actually delete the indices or we can delete the old documents from our indices????

Curator is for indices only. It will not delete documents.

Is there anyway we can delete the old documents from the indices because every time creating new indices won't be feasible

Try the delete_by_query API.

If your data is time series, this is still a poor approach. You'd do better to use rollover indices and expire the old data by dropping/deleting entire indices in such a case. If it's mostly static data, then the delete_by_query can work for you.

Which would be more wise Curator or ILM?

If you have at least a Basic license, and you do not need any of the additional functionality of Curator, use ILM for sure.
