Message rotation and compression

(immanens) #1

Hi, I plan to keep 7 day logs, but gray server seams to keep more then 10 days log. So I reduced to 3 days and I can always see all logs.
elasticsearch_max_number_of_indices = 3
rotation_strategy = time
retention_strategy = delete
elasticsearch_max_time_per_index = 1d

is there something wrong with those config lines?
and, can I activate elasticsearch compression? is that supposed to make bug graylog server?

Graylog / ElasticSearch Disk Compression


Change the retention times from the UI:

then Edit, and you’ll see the correct place to change the settings.

ok. I didn’t make search in a most common place. thanks for you answer. It was set to keep 20 indices and to rotate by indice size. Is there some schedule queue to delete useless indice?

You may ignore my question: graylog is deleting unless log and I’m getting more disk space.
