Hi Balgrim,

Did you change the default configuration of logstash, creating one index
per day? (http://logstash.net/docs/1.1.13/outputs/elasticsearch )

If you kept the default, you can simply run a cronjob calling the index
delete api to delete old indexes
(see: http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/reference/api/admin-indices-delete-index/
)

Cheers,
Boaz
