AWS Plugin Configuration backup

Hello, I just noticed the “AWS Plugin Configuration” option on graylog, apparently it is used to receive logs from AWS, but is it possible with this plugin to send logs from graylog to AWS in order to free up space? Thank you

:wave: Hi there. I think there might be a misunderstanding with how Graylog stores logs. Graylog, on its own, stores nothing. All of the logs you ship to Graylog are stored as indices in Elasticsearch. The indices stored in Elasticsearch are what consume disk space. That said, if you need to free up disk space on your Elasticsearch servers, then archiving is what you’d want. Archiving closes the indices after the retention period is reached and sends the closed indices to whatever storage backend you configure.
