How do I empty an index in an indexer cluster

Path Finder

Clients wanted a change in how there data was displayed using the sourcetype they first used. How do I remove all of what they have currently indexed so we don't get duplicate entries?

HI @nls7010,
in an Indexer Cluster, you could:

  • set to 1 the Retention Period (frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 1) for your index on Master Node,
  • push configurations to Peers,
  • wait 5 minutes,
  • set the Retention Periodto the value you like (frozenTimePeriodInSecs = your_value) for your index on Master Node,
  • push configurations to Peers.

Ciao.
Giuseppe
