Hi,

You can configure the setting index.name.time_format for a given exporter:

marvel.agent.exporters:
  id1:                              # default local exporter
    type: local
  
  id2:                                     # example of an http exporter
    type: http                             # exporter type, local or http
    host: [ "http://domain:port",... ]     # host(s) to send data to over http or https
    index:
      name:
        time_format: <string>              # time format suffix for marvel indices (default: "YYYY.MM.dd")

If you want monthly indices, use "YYYY.MM".

However if you stop Marvel from creating the indices altogether, it'll break.
If you don't want the data, uninstall the plugin.
