Managing Snapshot Files from Outside ES


(David Severski) #1

I'm currently carrying out snapshots to S3 via the cloud-aws plugin under
ES 1.2. I'd like to use Amazon's lifecycle policies to at least send older
snapshot files to Glacier (saving money) and ideally delete snapshot files
over a certain period. Is managing snapshot files outside of the ES API
supported (or advisable)?

Thanks for the help,

David

Hi,

I believe once you take a snapshot, it's up to you what you do with them...
if I understood your question correctly.

What you describe - sending old snapshots to Glacier, deletion of old
snapshot files sounds interesting. Would be interesting to see info about
how to do this published somewhere.

Thanks for this, Otis. For the archives, it looks like the indices
subdirectory at the snapshot repo can be managed outside of ES, while the
files at the top level of your repo (including the index and various
metadata files) need to be left as is. If you move those top level files to
Glacier, snapshot tracking from within ES breaks.
