I'm pretty new on Elasticsearch. I'm looking for a way to backup old indicies. I'm trying this with curator.
It is like a hot/cold setup.
I know, it looks like straight forward and easy evry-day-task - but I get struggeling all the times
The goal should be, that old indicies should be backed up on an other disk / fs-path - without indexing. And of course the possibility to restore them later for any research task.
A snapshot is not the way I would like to go; if I restore the snapshot all new documents will be lost, right?
The indices are named like dev-elastic-2018.07.20 (.20 is #week) and would be nice, if I can backup it with that name.
Is there any best-practice for it?
