Symptoms

Elasticsearch is filled with hundreds of statistics in _t10_* indexes because the postaggregator stops working.

Impact

Elasticsearch begins to work slowly, become unresponsive, and some indexes might become corrupted. Retention stops working.

Conditions

The retention of indexes stops working because the aggregation of indexes from tl0 to tl1 stops working, causing the tl0 indexes to accumulate and not aggregate.

Workaround

For BIG-IQ version version 7.1.x or earlier, refer to the solution article for workaround procedures.

Fix Information
