I'm running a single index that has lots of constant changes. I have noticed that my disk usage space keeps increasing and rarely drops. After doing some investigation, I found out that my docs.deleted count is 5 times larger than the active doc count.
What are some ways that I can deal with this problem? I have tried using https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/indices-forcemerge.html with only_expunge_deletes - but that just seems to run indefinitely and not remove anything.
Any help would be appreciated.
