Removing elasticsearch logs


(computer engineer) #1

I finally got the logstash - elasticsearch pipeline to work and able to
send json packets to logstash and into elasticsearch viewable in kibana.
What I am concerned about is the disk space that will be used for all these
messages? Is there way to clear these up and where would I find it? Perhaps
I could create a task to regularly clean the folder every 7 days.
Appreciate responses.

I found some suggestions on using plugin/head to view node status:
localhost:9200/_plugin/head/
and right there I can see the cluster health:read (3,2)
still not sure how to delete all old log messages

But in the meantime, try this to see if it helps:

thanks. Will look into that. Do you perhaps know where the directory is
that stores all these messages or log files
