I have a small 1GB test deployment on elastic cloud that I inherited.
This deployment has 255 shards that I want to reduce obviously.
I only created 2 indices so the rest of 253 shards are system once.
Most of them belong to APM and EnterpriseSearch.
How can I remove this services I don't need nor use?
Also in future environments, can I start the deployment without this services and then add them later on if needed?
Should I change the ILM of this services if I see that the default (30 days or 50gb) generates too many small indices? I'm a bit worried to touch system related settings.
Sorry for the load of questions and I appreciate the help.
