public final class IndexGraveyard
extends java.lang.Object
implements MetaData.Custom
A collection of tombstones for explicitly marking indices as deleted in the cluster state. The cluster state contains a list of index tombstones for indices that have been deleted in the cluster. Because cluster states are processed asynchronously by nodes and a node could be removed from the cluster for a period of time, the tombstones remain in the cluster state for a fixed period of time, after which they are purged.
