You're right. The lambda function will create indices with name like cwl-YYYY.MM.DD. You can change the naming pattern by modifying the code in the lambda function where the variable indexName is being declared.
Since you are using OpenSearch for indexing log data, consider UltraWarm which provides a low-cost storage tier for older read-only data like logs which you might query less frequently.
