I have been running Graylog 3.3 for a while (alongside ES 6), and have recently upgraded GL to 4 RC2. The update seems neat and I have encountered no bugs thus far. Thanks to the Graylog team for this release !
My question is, are there any motives/advantages/arguments in favour of upgrading to ES 7 ? ES 6 has been stable for me, but I’d be willing to upgrade if there are performence benefits or features in 7 that are beneficial to Graylog.

ES 6.8 is end of life tomorrow 11/20/2020.
still a very capable platform, but might also be incentive to upgrade.
The backup/retention stuff in ES7 is also very good
We have observed a roughly 10% decrease in resource utilization with the same load following our upgrade from 6.8 to 7.10, so there appear to be efficiency improvements.
