Need Experts thoughts on below ..........
When we try to delete snapshot using traditional way its taking around 3 hours and we are having around 2k snapshots and it takes ages to house keep snapshots.
I came across curator utility to delete snapshots and would like to know if curator utility does snapshot deletion quicker when compared to traditional way- we don't have required test environments to compare and need some guidance.
Traditional way of deleting snapshots
curl --fail -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/_snapshot/repo1/snapshot2?pretty=true'
curator delete snapshots --regex 'snapshot1' --repository repo1
