Issue/Introduction

The Elasticsearch container uses over 200 GB of disk space and grows daily. How can this disk space be released?

Environment

Release : API Portal 4.0, 4.1, 4.2

Resolution

1. Long term analytics should have at least 300GB assigned to it. 

2. In order to free up the disk space for Jarvis container’s volume data, we recommend removing the following docker named volumes (Note: You will lose data if you choose to clear these volumes):

• portal_elasticsearch-backup-volume
• portal_elasticsearch-data-volume
• portal_kafka-data-volume
• portal_zookeeper-data-volume

3. We recommend upgrading to Portal 4.3.x where we support configurable data retention periods for Jarvis:
