Metrics for data ingest and generation per day/month


Hi there,

I was wondering if there is a place or a way to see the data ingest (amount of data) as logs per day (or month).
I was looking through the subsections in the System panel but couldn’t find such statistics or metrics.
Of course, I could ssh to my Graylog server and check the disk space but I’d like to check the average amount of logs we’ve been generating over time instead.

Graylog did not save that data - you need to save that yourself. For example with that plugin to your own metric storage:


Hmmm… okay then, if I want to check the space taken up only by logs data, where and what do I have to look for? Do I have to look into the ElasticSearch server? Which part of it, specifically?
Or is there a place in the Graylog UI that specify the logs data?
I know I can see the indexers’ accumulated data, but I assume that’s not the total data accumulated by logs.

You can see the indices sizes on the System/Indices page.
