Where to check if a cluster is dumping backups in linux?


I am still learning ES and been given an ES cluster hosted on CentOS 6.5 machines to check if it's dumping a backup somewhere.

I used the GET /_snapshot/_all api but get nothing back so no snapshots have been configured.

I checked the daily scheduled logs /var/log/elasticsearch for the past few days and no mention of a backup there.

/_cluster/stats api doesnt mention anything related to snapshots or backups either.

My supervisor was sure that the previous guy told him the backups are being dumped somewhere?

Can someone guide me here please? Feel like I am looking in the wrong places.

If there are no snapshots configured, none are probably taken.
