Kibana defualt indexes usage

How do I determine which of my .Kibana indexes are being used by the stack?
i have quite a few of those indexes, some of which are probably not benig used and are interfering with my logstash and elasticsearch update

If you are referring to .kibana_1, .kibana_2 and so on, those are leftovers from migrating Kibana from version to version. You can delete those except for the one with the highest number (and .kibana itself, that's just an alias), see the documentation here:

Only the last .kibana_x index is used normally. You can check that by running:
GET /_alias/.kibana in the Console. That should give you the index name that is used by Kibana.
