Is it possible to make 'elasticsearch index capped'?

Hi all,

I have 20G storage for elasticsearch storing data, I don't really care the importance of these data (e.g. log data), so is it possible to make 'elasticsearch index capped' like 'mongo capped collection'?

Any suggestion or documentation?


Anyone can help?

Elasticsearch Curator can do this.

There is nothing native for it. You'd have to rig something up that creates time based indexes and deletes them when you start getting full.

Thanks all, its useful
