Why elasticsearch does not allow snapshot in queue?

Cannot queue a snapshot process? What if we have daily snapshot running everyday and monthly snapshot every month but there are some time lap over during this process. Monthly snapshot usually take longer than 24 hours.


I'm bumping this because this question is posted all over the boards, but I haven't found one with an answer.

Is there an official answer to this great question? There needs to be a way to queue snapshots and the "wait_for_completion" parameter does not satisfy our requirements.

That sounds like a really interesting idea. If I had some spare time, I would have probably implemented something like this. As far as I know, nobody is working on it at the moment.
