I'm doing a backup in our S3. So far we're using a monthly index, but we're planning to do a daily backup using curator.
- Elasticsearch 5.6.1
- Curator 5.2
Here are some questions:
- Is it good to do a daily snapshot for each index ?
- Using the curator filters, is it possible to grab the current date? because when using timestring and regex, it still grabs all the similar pattern which is index-YEAR-MONTH.
- For snapshot, is it okay to include old indices even it will be deleted since I'm going to create snapshot based from creation time
- Since we're using a monthly index, we expect to create a snapshot while there's an on-going index. Based from the docs, this shouldn't be an issue.
