I have 2TB of indices. It just hit the flood stage watermark. I resolved this via CURL and now it allows manually deleting some indices. It removes them from Kibana, etc. I can delete it via curl or Kibana and it is acknowledged and removed. It is however not freeing up the space.
- I went ahead and also removed the ILM from the index before deleting a few indices, still no luck.
- Although I removed a whole index, also tried POST _forcemerge to no avail.
How can I recover space now that the indices are deleted?
