DescriptionDELETE_ON_INGEST_QUEUE Environment Variable
Defaulttrue

Deletes events from the ingest queue when they have been saved in Humio. It is still important to configure Kafka retention on the ingest queue.

ini files
DELETE_ON_INGEST_QUEUE=true

The Kafka retention defines how long data can be kept on the ingest queue and, thus, how much time Humio has to read the data and store it internally.

See KAFKA_SERVERS for more information and an example.
