I am a Developer using Elastic technology to parse our log files. I was wondering on how does the .sincedb naming convention work?
For example when an index is created, it generates a .sincedb file. I was curious how Elasticsearch associates the index to the file name, given the naming format stated in the documentation.
2.) major devicenumber
3.) minor device number
4.) byte offset
Example if I have an index name of 'sample' how will the .sincedb file name be generated? I am running on a Windows 64 platform. I read around, it is stated that it is generated in the file path and file content which would vary across platforms. Any form of input would be helpful!
