Location Path of Closed Indices


(Tanwer Siddiqui) #1

Hi All

Location for Indices is at /var/lib/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/nodes/0/indices/logstash-date

My query is, after closing of Indices whats the Path location of Closed Indices.

Or

how could we find the closed indices Path in Unix.

They stay in the same location.

Hi Mark

So is there no way to pick the closed indices and have a copy backup of it.


(Mark Walkom) #4

Sure, you can do a cp if you want.


(Tanwer Siddiqui) #5

Ok, but first task before me is to find out the closed indices


(Mark Walkom) #6

Just because you close them doesn't mean they get moved.
As mentioned, they stay in the same place on disk.

Ok, please advice.. how i should take the backup of closed Index


(Mark Walkom) #8

You can just copy the data directory, or you can reopen it and use snapshot.
