It’s important to understand the issues related to the log, so to get started, read the general overview on common issues and tips related to the Elasticsearch concepts: blobstore, index, repositories, repository-azure and snapshots.

Advanced users might want to skip right to the common problems section in each concept or try running the Check-Up which analyses ES to pinpoint the cause of many errors and provides suitable actionable recommendations how to resolve them (free tool that requires no installation).

Log Context

{{mpg_logstarted}}

Log “[{}] index [{}] no longer part of any snapshots in the repository;” classname is BlobStoreRepository.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

                 } catch (DirectoryNotEmptyException dnee) {
                    // if the directory isn't empty for some reason; it will fail to clean up;
                    // we'll ignore that and accept that cleanup didn't fully succeed.
                    // since we are using UUIDs for path names; this won't be an issue for
                    // snapshotting indices of the same name
                    logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("[{}] index [{}] no longer part of any snapshots in the repository; " +
                        "but failed to clean up its index folder due to the directory not being empty."; metadata.name(); indexId); dnee);
                } catch (IOException ioe) {
                    // a different IOException occurred while trying to delete - will just log the issue for now
                    logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("[{}] index [{}] no longer part of any snapshots in the repository; " +
                        "but failed to clean up its index folder."; metadata.name(); indexId); ioe);
