More flexible hot/cold index retention strategy Merged

To avoid having many indices open at the same time, consider having a mixed retention strategy that closes older indices without removing them. Searches that would affect time ranges in those "cold" indices should offer to open those indices temporarily. Combined with the ability to automatically close cold indices after a timeout period this could greatly save on resources.

    We have seen a elasticsearch slowdown with many open indexes/shards. If older data is seldom used for search, this may be a good solution.
