Issue/Introduction

 
 

The amount of traces in ao_apm_tt_2 index in jarvis-elastic grows extremely large and is not deleted by timestamp.

 

Cannot find the retention period of the "apm_tt" doc_type but no doc_type "apm_tt" is onboarded in the apis interface.

 

apm_tt is the doc_type because it shows up by elastic search on the ao_apm_tt_2 index

 

 

 

 

Cause

 

Investigation was not pursued into why trace index was not onboarded.

Environment

Release : 20.2

Component : APM Agents

Resolution

 
 
Default storage time for trace information is 7 days.
 
Following information assumes traces are onboarded which is to be expected in normal behaviour.
