Rotation and Retention on FileBeat


Does filebeat have a built in capability for file retention and rotation?

Filebeat doesn't manage data retention for you. There is a tool called Elastic Curator that can delete old indices for you.

You can configure how often Filebeat writes to a new index by customizing the index name. By default is uses a daily index pattern. This makes it simple to delete old data since you can just drop entire indices.
