Marvel Indices taking lot of space ? Can we specify automatic delete of marvel indice?


(deepakas) #1

Is there a way to set marvel to delete the marvel indices after 7 days. It looks like Marvel is generating around 2 GB of data everyday. Our disk got full 2 times because of Marvel data. Is there a way to reduce the amount of data generated by marvel ?

Also is there any plan to add alert mechanisms in Marvel.
For example if the Marvel status goto red it will be good to get an email for a specified user. I see Marvel status as red. But it doesnt show why it is causing red. It will be good to get some alerts with the details when the cluster status goes red.

I do not use Marvel, but another monitoring system built on top of
Elasticsearch. I use the Elasticsearch Curactor to delete old indices:

I have a cron entry to run the curator once per day. Perhaps something
already exists in Marvel, not sure since I am not a user.

Cheers,

Ivan

Hi,

Ivan's advice is correct. Currently, curator is the way to go. There is
also talk about building an index level TTL in elasticsearch but this is
not reality yet.

As to reducing data - first question is whether your using version 1.1.X of
marvel - this one has greatly reduced the data signature. If not, upgrading
would be the easiest option. O.w. you can also look at the interval
settings in the agent. You can get it up to 30s if you want to.

At the moment there is no alerting built into Marvel. You can use the
marvel data & easily write a nagios script (or similar) to add it to your
monitoring data.

Regarding RED status explanations - working on it - watch for the upcoming
release :slight_smile:

Cheers,
Boaz

Hi Ivan/Boaz,

Thanks for the responses. I will checkout Curator. I already got the latest version of marvel last week using this command.
bin/plugin -i elasticsearch/marvel/latest

Thanks, Deepak

(Gokul) #6

Deepak,

Can you try the command with a hyphen at the end -
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/curator/curator.py -d 3 -p .marvel-
For some reason, curator doesn't match the marvel indices when using
".marvel" as the prefix.

Regards,
