Extend appliance version 3.1 disk

Trying to extend disk space on appliance version 3.1
Found documentation from version 2.2 but it appears that /var/opt/graylog/data does not exist in version 3.1
Does anyone know the new location of the files in version 3.1?

Thank you.

as Graylog 3.1 appliance is using a default environment you can see the most common locations in the documentation:


Thank you very much for the quick reply Jan. I guess that means that each one of the folders for Graylog, Elasticsearch and MongoDB have to be copied to the new disk?


the logs are stored in elasticsearch - so that is where you need most space. You can resize the given disk and raise the filesystem size or add one additional disk and use the ability of Elasticsearch to have multiple data paths - or you add a new disk and move all data of elasticsearch to that disk - or you move the data to the new disk and mount it finally to the default location.

Multiple ways where you need to choose the one that fits your needs the most.

Thank you Jan. I will try the option to resize the disk. I will be away for a few days so I’ll report back in the new year.
