How to clean / delete logs from _internaldb and _introspection indexes


Hello Splunkers, 

My _internaldb and _introspection indexes are getting bigger and I am wondering if I can delete some events in order to reduce their sizes ? How would I do that ? Is it safe to do it ? 

Thanks for your time !

you could set retention times etc. as any other indexes have. I prefer to use separate app/SA which contains these definitions. Then just install it on your indexer or via cluster master.
