Curator CRON task in Docker
Dockerized version of Elasticsearch Curator run as CRON daily task. Useful for production, maintanence-free, deployment to manage time-based indices.
Why this image
This image allows you to deploy scheduled Curator task as Docker container in fraction of second. There are couple of good
images that run the command just once. But if you use infrastructure like AWS ECS, Kubernetes and similar, you may want to
start one container that runs as a service and keeps your Elasticsearch indices tidy.
Image entrypoint is set to curator script wrapper, that creates daily CRON task and starts
crond. Use transparently as
you would run
curator command directly:
docker run --rm docx/curator-cron:3.4.0 --host 188.8.131.52 --port 80 delete indices --older-than 1 --time-unit days --timestamp '%Y.%m.%d'
