Index lifecycle management (ILM)edit

The index lifecycle management (ILM) feature in Elasticsearch allows you to automate the lifecycle of your APM Server indices as they grow and age. ILM is enabled by default, and a default policy is applied to all APM indices.

To view and edit these index lifecycle policies in Kibana, select Stack Management / Index Lifecycle Management. Search for apm.

See manage the index lifecycle for more information.
