You can configure index lifecycle management (ILM) policies to automatically manage indices according to your performance, resiliency, and retention requirements. For example, you could use ILM to:
- Spin up a new index when an index reaches a certain size or number of documents
- Create a new index each day, week, or month and archive previous ones
- Delete stale indices to enforce data retention standards
To automatically back up your indices and manage snapshots, use snapshot lifecycle policies.
