Graylog / ElasticSearch Disk Compression


(Jake Smith) #1

Dear All,

Does anyone know if Graylog uses any form of disk compression when storing logs, other SIEM solutions use disk compression to reduce on disk footprint of logs.

I found this post about rotation at Message rotation and compression

I also found some discussion regarding compression in elasticsearch. Does Graylog enable this feature?

KInd Regards

Index compression is enabled by default in Elasticsearch.

You can customize the compression settings in a custom index template.
