. . . . or will it restart from where it was stopped?
The 'CLI options' of the fscrawler manual states that
--restart restarts a job from scratch. This suggests that the default is to restart from where the fscrawler was stopped.
I have just noticed that although the Kibana Index Management 'docs count' has not changed since fscrawler was restarted, the storage size HAS increased, suggesting that files ARE being indexed.
Is there some way of causing the 'docs count' to refresh?
