Disk Usage of a Stream


If I understand correctly, there is no way to determine the disk usage at the ES Cluster of a single stream in graylog.

The only option I have found is to create an own index set per stream and then query the disk space of each index of this set usage using Elasticsearch API.

I have two questions:

  • Does anyone know other options?

  • Is there a limit on the number of index sets in Graylog ?

No, there is virtually no limit of the number of index sets in Graylog.

At some point, Elasticsearch might have problems managing the number of underlying indices. See https://www.elastic.co/blog/how-many-shards-should-i-have-in-my-elasticsearch-cluster for some details.


@Jochen THX for your feedback.
