Translog files cause OutOfDiskSpace


(OlgaT) #1

Hi,

We have problem with translog files - the old files are not removed
and after running the server for several days, we get OutOfDiskSpace
exception.
Is this the default/normal behavior?
Is there any way to configure the ES to avoid this problem.

Thanks,
Olga

Which version of ES are you using? I think that before ES 0.17.5 old
transaction log files were not removed when flushing.

We use 0.17.4.
We will try the newer version

Is there any other way to solve this problem beside upgrading ES version?
Does that means that every one with older version than 0.17.5 will
encounter this Out Of disk space error in the long run?

Thanks,
Shay

FWIW, I don't believe this is an issue pre 0.17.3 releases(https://
github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/1180). So, you can
probably downgrade instead :slight_smile:
